Chicken, Sausage, and Shrimp Gumbo

Cooler weather calls for hearty one-bowl meals like soups, stews, and one of my favorites, GUMBO! Serve Chicken, Sausage, and Shrimp Gumbo on top of rice and adjust the heat to your taste by adding a sprinkle of hot pepper sauce.

I like to grill my chicken and Italian sausages for this dish, but to save time you may purchase pre-cooked chicken and Keilbasa instead.

Using frozen veggies is another time saver, but using fresh chopped peppers, onions, and celery works just as well.

Remember to add the shrimp at the end of cooking so that it doesn’t become chewy and rubbery. It only needs to cook until it becomes opaque. Enjoy!
