Delicious Gumbo Recipe, Member MissK_alltheway

I have made this Gumbo recipe many times and it NEVER disappoints! I use a rotisserie chicken because it's so moist and juicy, jalapenos for an added kick, and just about any spice I can find on the rack. This is a meal that my hubby asks for repeatedly, and it's so easy that I love making it! Definitely worth 5 stars!
