Glenn's Gumbo

 * The Rotel/Red Gold is what gives it its 'kick', if you don't want it spicy use only one can or try the mild. Rotel Mexican Festival is hard to find, Kroger has it but in some stores it's in the Mexican foods section and in other stores its with the diced tomatoes.

Ingredient List: Part 1

  • 1/2 lb. smoked sausage
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 3/4 lb. chicken breast cooked and shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 8 cups of water/Chicken broth (carton not cans)
  • 2~ 10oz cans of "Rotel Mexican Festival. or Red Gold Festival (2 -3 cans)*

Ingredient List: Part 2

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • Dash of Hot Sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning****
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt****
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme****
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper*****

Instructions: Part 1

Brown sausage, onions** and peppers in skillet, drain and put in crock pot. Add celery and chicken. The original recipe calls for 3/4 cup of all purpose flour and 8 cups of water, eight cups seems like too much water to me, I usually do 3-4 cups and add two 10oz cans of "Rotel Mexican Festival.*

Instructions: Part 2

Add seasonings to crock-pot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Serve over 4 cups of cooked [hot] rice and garnish with 2/4 cup sliced green onions.***

* The Rotel/Red Gold is what gives it its 'kick', if you don't want it spicy use only one can or try the mild. Rotel Mexican Festival is hard to find, Kroger has it but in some stores it's in the Mexican foods section and in other stores its with the diced tomatoes.

** I only brown about half of the onions and save the rest for adding to the crock-pot about half way through the cooking time.

*** Trying to cut back on the starches I substitute frozen corn for the rice, adding it and the above mentioned onions to the crock-pot about half way thought the cooking time so that there will be a little 'crunch' to them.

****These were the original seasonings but I have since made my own seasoning combination for both this and the Chili
