    My 3yo ate this. That by far is an accomplishment!!!! I did take the advice of others. I cut the chx broth to 3 cans. did not have roma tomatoes so i used 2 cans of diced plus about a cup of crushed tomatoes. i also added crabmeat, i would not recommend wasting money on lump meat, in the end its not lump anymore. i did not add the shrimp with the other meats (for 20mins due complaints of them being rubbery). I waited until it was done, turned the pot off, then added the shrimp, stirring occasionally. they were done and perfect in about 10-15mins. this also served as my cooling time. This is definitely a keeper!!!!! oh yeah if don't have sweet onions on hand use reg onions and 1 1/2 teaspoons of white sugar.  -  17 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was my second try with this recipe and my third try at gumbo. My first attempt was when I was wooing my wife and I went a bit overboard with the seafood (about a $60 pot of Gumbo). The first time I tried this recipe it came out great and my wife and I both loved it. Just made it for the third time and it is the best yet. As I have been told Gumbo is all about the roux. My first tries I was paranoid about burning it so I proceeded before the roux was ready. This time I used medium/low heat and took my time. It took about 35 minutes, but it was well worth it. Roux should be a nice medium brown (at least a little darker than peanut butter). A good roux has a delicious nutty aroma and will make a good recipe phenomenal. Thank you so much for the recipe and the comments!  -  24 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Hot Diggity Dog! THIS IS AWESOME! If your in the mood for some foot stomping, "toe-curling" gumbo - this is the recipe to try! Even if you've never had gumbo before - this would be a great recipe to convert you! Per others, I reduced the broth to 5 cups, increased the chicken and used "smoked cajun sausage" (and more of it). Also, I drained a can of tomatoes instead of chopping the roma's and used a green bell pepper instead of the red chile peppers. Thick, hearty, spicy (but not hot) and great over rice. Makes a ton but it we can't wait for the leftovers! Thanks so much Jason and Lupe! This recipe deserves nothing less than five stars!!!  -  05 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
