Easy Gumbo Recipes

Gumbo is a dish that originates in Louisiana and often consists of chicken, seafood, and a strongly flavored stock. Gumbo is thickened with a dark-colored roux, but other vegetables, such as okra, might also help to thicken the gumbo. If you desire, you can serve your gumbo over a bowl of rice.
