A delicious traditional Cajun food.  It is different that what you may have eaten in New Orleans.  Cher, dis is Cajun, I told you for sure!

1 large onion

1 large bell pepper

4-6 cloves of garlic

1 bunch of scallions


hot sause made of the tabasco pepper

salt  (to taste)

1 pound of sausage

4 slices of smoked ham

chicken broth

roux (see video bake-a-roux--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvf4Ad4wCXQ&t=15s)

rice  (see vido-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF1WeGU1cl8&t=2s)




chop and then sauté the garlic, onions, bell pepper--I like to add my salt and pepper

Chop the scallions and save for later

After garlic mix is sautéd, and the chicken broth and water

when that comes to a boil, add 3 tablespoons of roux)

add now about a tablespoon of filé

let that boil for 3-5 minuntes and add a few shakes of the sause from tabasco. 

let that boil for 3-5 minutes

add the meat-cook for about 20 minutes (make sure the meat is cooked)

add the Filé and scallions

let the dish settle for a few minutes.

Put rice in a bowl and pour the gumbo over it
