    My first time making gumbo and it turned out perfect. I love this app.

    Been using this recipe for more than a year now and it never disappoints. I add shrimp and I do not use the gumbo file or cayenne pepper. I use Tony’s as a base seasoning, I also add a little lemon juice and agave to give it more flavor but for any first timers this is the recipe for you!

    Really good, used Tony Cs creole seasoning and Tony Cs roux mix in place of making a roux and using the gumbo file; only 1/4 tsp of cayenne and was still a tad hot for us. Next time we will omit cayenne as the there is enough spice in TCs and the andouille sausage for us

    Banging gumbo. we had to modify the roux a little bit we used oil and flour and a lower temperature, also could not find gumbo file anywhere. but we followed everything pretty much to the T and added some tony chacheres. i have a friend that brings andoullie from New Orleans and ot gives it such an amazing smokey taste. will make again and brag about

    I loved it! It had a really good flavor. I only used one can of the tomatoes and Cajun seasoning. It was a hit with my kids.

    Really good. I reduced the chicken and added shrimp in the last 4 minutes.

    Very Good! I made it a day early and haven’t tasted it the second day. Before putting it in the fridge, I took more than my share of taste tests. With the amount of cayenne suggested, it’s pretty spicy. I like it, but perhaps next time, I’ll cut it a little for those spicy-intolerant folks. I also liked the idea of adding shrimp. This was my first attempt at gumbo, and I wasn’t disappointed.

    It actually turned out pretty decent. I think once it sits over night and the juices and seasonings set it’ll be even better!

    Very good!! Would definitely make again!

    Super easy - the roux was cooked lower than recommended, and thus, took longer. I mixed both precooked chicken along with grilled chicken strips. I didn't use the file, and it still turned out phenomenal.

    Great!! This is my first time making gumbo and was a little concerned with my ability to cook it at the tail-end of making the roux (smelled like it was burning) but all turned out well! I had A LOT of chicken because I had it leftover from another recipe, so I didn’t measure it. I added a little Tony C and shrimp because I can’t leave anything alone and I left out the devils taint that is okra because. No. #justsaynotodevilstaintokra

    absolutely amazing!!! I was leary about the orka, but mixed in, it was great! I cut the spice down by half for my kids and just added extra on my own. Everyone loved it, full of flavor and very filling! I ordered the gumbo file on Amazon since it wasn't around here.

    This was a really awesome recipe! I added more spices just for that extra kick, but it was really a hit in my house.

    I made this yesterday and oh my goodness. It's delicious! I took the advise of a reviewer and added shrimp. I omitted the okra, because I just don't like it. Definitely making this again.

    Turned out great! I added a pound of shrimp with the sausage and chicken. Didn’t use any file but still had really good flavor and consistency.

    It was great! I used sausage instead of chicken, and didn’t use any file.. I also added extra cayenne for extra spice, and some paprika.

    This is an amazing recipe, but you should expect to spend a couple of hours making this. It’s not too spicy, but still has a nice heat. This makes a lot of gumbo, but the left overs are still delicious!!! This is good dinner idea for big family dinner nights. Beware of the Roux because if you don’t put enough butter with the flour, it can cause your roux to clump. Make sure it’s a dense half cup of butter. Or use a whole butter stick.
