Nothing says lovin like some spicy Louisiana cooking. I absolutely LOVE making this when I have the time. I'm toning down the amount of creole seasoning that I use, because I tend to be a little heavy handed with it. The amount is an approximate - season to your taste. You can substitute cajun seasoning for the creole if you like. It's all about personal preference!


2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts; medium dice
1 can substitute smoked sausage
1 pound medium shrimp; peeled and deveined
3 teaspoons creole seasoning
1 medium green bell pepper; seeded and chopped
1 medium red bell pepper; seeded and chopped
1 medium yellow bell pepper; seeded and chopped
5 jalapeno peppers; seeded and chopped, optional
4 stalks celery: chopped
2 medium yellow onions; chopped
4 garlic cloves; minced
1 can petite diced tomatoes; 28 ounce
2 tablespoons louisiana style hot sauce; or to taste
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon gumbo file powder
