PREVIOUS: Easy Chicken Gumbo NEXT: Gumbo Z'herbes

Ingredients (5)

  • 1 package of smoked sausage- your choice of flavor
  • 2 cans whole kernel corn- mexicn corn works well also
  • 2 cans of tomatoes and okra
  • seasoning: garlic, pepper, italian seasoning
  • 2-3 cups of rice ( my family prefers brown)/ you can substitute minute rice

This dish was inspired by my family wanting a quick and filling meal even though the fridge was low on supplies. If you want some variation, you can add shrimp or other seafood. I have always loved my mothers Gumbo and wanted to try a working mothers’ version.


  1. 1slice sausgae into 1 in circular pieces and in a larger skillet, sautee’ in oil of choice for about 10-15 minutes on med/high heat
  2. 2while meat is cooking, start boiling rice so that it will be done when everything else is done. if you use a quicker cooking rice, you can start boiling after adding vegetables to meat
  3. 3add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to med/low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until flavors are combined
  4. 4turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes to allow juice to thicken, serve over rice
