Spicy Sausage Gumbo Soup





I'm a true northerner or a Yankee (as some in the South would call us) I was born and raised in Chicago and never make cajun food although I love it.  Gumbo is one of my favorites but I really don't have a clue when it comes to cooking it. Recently I found a recipe for Gumbo soup that seemed easy enough. It turned out really well and it tasted fantastic!


Spicy Sausage Gumbo Soup
Adapted from Southern Food.Com

Ingredients
1 pound smoked sausage
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/4 cup chopped red bell peppers
1 cup chopped celery
3 tablespoons butter
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
2 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
2 quarts chicken broth
2-3 Cups hot cooked rice


In a large saucepan, saute sausage, onions, green and red bell peppers, and celery in butter for approximately 10 minutes; add tomatoes. Stir in seasonings and let simmer for 20 minutes. Slowly stir in chicken broth and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Adjust with water or chicken stock to taste. Add cooked rice and garnish with green onions, if desired. Enjoy!
