  • Very Good

    This gumbo was delicious! I added Cajun Seasoning, didn't use celery, used a red pepper instead of green and used only 2 cups of chicken broth-Also added crab meat. I don't see sausage listed in the ingredients although it says it in the directions-I used Andouille. Will definitely make again! Thx! - 9/24/10
