nancyorourkeEasy recipe, and adequate tasting, we all ate it. We're tough critics on Cajun food though, because we live really close to New Orleans and Cajun country.2w ago
cricket85This was a good recipe because it was fair and simple. I added more cayenne and more Kuhman to suit my taste. Would recommend because it's so easy for a work night. Make sure you brown the room till it's nice and peanut butter Golden it makes all the difference1m ago

skot0123Family loved it, didn't have any okra but it was great2y ago
brittanyjoefalcoPretty good, i recommend substituting some water for broth.2y ago
Jackiechan042003I've never eaten gumbo before but this was super good! I doubled cayenne and added 1 tsp creole seasoning. I also used jalapeño smoked sausage for more spice. I did the high heat on the crockpot and didn't add the chicken pieces until the last hour to prevent the chicken from becoming soggy. Will make again!2y ago
