It was very good. Next time I’ll make the roux a little thicker.

A little too heavy with the pepper seasoning for my taste and directions with roux could be confusing for a new cook. File powder is impossible to find and recipe should indicate that okra could be substituted

Adding the vegetables and sausage in to the Roux is not a good idea, the meat doesn’t brown and the flour soaks up all the cooking juices. The directions are very bad, makes it difficult to cook.

I added diced chicken thighs & cubed ham that I had in the freezer (and couldn't find file), but it was still delicious!! I will definitely make this again.

This recipe was awesome! Big hit at my place I did reduce the Cheyenne and Cajun seasoning to 1/2 tbsp. Had to adjust the roux sauce due to high elevation cooking. I definitely will make again

good and easy to make

Such good comfort food especially during the winter. It turned out amazing and so flavorful. Reminded me of my time in New Orleans. I used Cajun spices I bought during my trip in NOLA which gave it the perfect kick and heat. I made the roux in a cast iron skillet then transferred over to a pot to make sure the roux had good consistency. The finished product was delicious. I will definitely be making this again and again!

Only deviated slightly from this recipe. I added a cooked chicken breast so the kids would like it. Then I served them and then added the hot sauce and the shrimp. I didn’t have Gumbo filé so I used a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up at the end but not too thick... barely stuck to the spoon. I recommend this dish with no reservations.

Amazing!!! So good!!!

This was my first Yummy App recipe and it was amazing! The instructions were so well worded. I bought every ingredient on the list except for the Gumbo File’ - only because it wasn’t available. Everything else I got at Walmart for a one stop shopping experience. I followed the directions exactly ( I added corn) and it came out great. This is a spicy gumbo so be careful. Also, like she says in the recipe- please read ahead. You REALLY need to have all your prep work done (veggies chopped etc) before you start. Thanks

Came out amazing! When I cooked it, it didn’t smell spicy enough though so I added a lot more kick to it it was amazing over white rice!!!
Bill 10 Oct 2018
Came out really good. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added two cooked chicken breasts cubed at the same time as the andouille sausage. Will definitely make again

So good! I cut up my sausage into tiny bites I also put a cup of cut okra in mine I see people are having trouble finding “File” It is not with the seasonings it is most likely in the salad dressing aisle next to more of the Cajun things or already prepared roux ENJOY

"Spicy" but delicious!
Kasia Rudolf 25 Sep 2018

Tyler R. 18 Sep 2018
This is an incredible recipe! I am very glad I came across it.
Rachel 16 Sep 2018
First time ever making a dish like this and it was delish! Will be making it again!
Johnny-O 12 Sep 2018
Excellent flavors and luckily I had all ingredients on hand will make again, the heat level was fairly high but right where it should be
Jack B. 3 Sep 2018
Top quality gumbo. I used all 3 bell pepper colors and andouille sausage. Fed 6 people with leftovers.
Shaheda Wilson 30 Aug 2018
It was delicious. I added chicken and tons of spices to spice it up. I ask added okra which gave it the complete New Orleans taste.
Brian M. 26 Aug 2018
I’ve made this multiple times and it’s fantastic!
Nariman 21 Aug 2018
Turned out pretty good and tasty, I used plain flour I in stead of all use flour, and I couldn’t find the gumbo file so I didn’t used that either, but overall was happy with the outcome! 😻
Santana Mcmahon 16 Aug 2018
I live in New Orleans. Our gumbo does not have tomatoes but I gave it a try anyway. Overall it was good, better the next day. I rated a 3 Star because it’s not New Orleans gumbo. It doesn’t have okra which is a main ingredient. However, it was a good gumbo.
Kate 15 Aug 2018
Wow delicious! I used 24 oz of precooked salad shrimp (which I added when the rest of the soup was done as not to overcook the shrimp), and because I couldn't find gumbo file` at Kroger or Walmart I bought the only Gumbo seasoning I could find instead. Some say gumbo is not officially gumbo without okra but ours is okra-free and still amazing. 😄
Yancey 14 Aug 2018
it came out great i just added chicken and i couldnt find gumbo file'.
Bernadette Connors 13 Aug 2018
Delicious!!! I would definitely make this again.
Andrea 10 Aug 2018
I love how you break down the levels of roux!!! Great taste
Dado Kljuco 6 Aug 2018
pretty good Gumbo. I'm gonna make it again.
