Lisa's Chicken GumboSubmitted by: BAREFOOT-LISA
IntroductionAll the other recipes either didn't include rice or included sausage, so here's mine, based on what I had in the house! With brown rice, plenty of veggies and no sausage.

This is so delicious. I noticed that the use of the tomato sauce isn't included in the instructions. I didn't use it and it came out wonderful. I also subbed fresh tomatoes and a jalapeno for the canned tomatoes with chilies. It's lovely. Warm cornbread just came out of the oven, too. About to chow! - 9/5/10

Thanks, I forgot to take out the sausage in the instructions, so just ignore that!
