One might call a gumbo a soup, but doing that is like calling a Rolls-Royce a thing to drive you from one place to another. Gumbos are the kings of soups, and there are as many varieties as there are Louisianians.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Be sure to have some file powder and hot pepper sauce to season to your liking.

Serve over hot rice with potato salad and crackers, if desired
