David's Easy Gumbo!

This is a sumptuous recipe for Gumbo thunk up by my beloved cousin David. You know, the David of legend? If anyone knows Gumbo, it’s David! This recipe of his is a condensed version of the average Gumbo! And as tasty as all get out! David says it can be on the table in 45 minutes.

So, let’s get cooking!

First, sauté the chicken breast in a little olive oil until thoroughly cooked. Set aside and cool when done.

Meanwhile, dice the Vidalia onion.

Follow the directions on the box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice. Adjust the water accordingly for using the can of Margaret Holmes tomatoes, okra, and corn.

Add the onions and PepperMary Cajun Blend.

Slice the cooked and cooled chicken breast, the smoked sausage, and the cooked shrimp with the tails removed, if still on.

Add the chicken and smoked sausage, and bring to a boil, stirring so the rice doesn’t stick. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve hot and enjoy! ~TMMF
