I love gumbo, and this is a quick and easy recipe.  It shouldn’t take more than half an hour to make! 

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 red bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen cut okra
  • 8 ounces smoked (precooked) andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced 1 inch thick
  • 1 rotisserie chicken (about 2 1/2 pounds), skin and bones removed, meat shredded (about 4 cups)
  1. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil over medium. Add flour, and cook, whisking constantly, until pale golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in bell peppers, onion, garlic, and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Add 4 cups water; stir in okra and sausage. Bring to a boil. Stir in shredded chicken, and warm through, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; if desired, serve with cornbread.

Easy enough?  I’d love to hear if you try these recipes or any feedback.  Also, if you’ve got a recipe you’d like to share, please leave it in the comments!

  1. Now this sounds like a gumbo that I *would* like! My son always makes his with lots of seafood stuff, like shrimp and other fishy things that I don’t really care much fore. I’ll have to try this soon.
