I can't stop eating this very hearty soup. I wish I can share this to the people in Buffalo, NY whos been suffering from that wicked snowstorm they had lately. This is semi home made because I used the Zatarin's gumbo mix. I simply browned Johansville sweet pork sausage then added the gumbo mix and stir fried it with cut up yellow onions then added 5 c of water and simmered it for 20 minutes. Shredded cooked chicken, black beans, frozen okra, thawed frozen cooked shrimps were added and had it simmered again for 10 minutes then finally added freshly ground black pepper and ground garlic. I promise you, it's so so so good!
