5 Quick and Easy Gumbo Recipes

Bring an authentic taste of Louisiana to your Kitchen with Jambalaya Girl New Orleans Food Products now available at Costco – and her Gumbo Mix is on sale at select Costco locations!

 

There are so many ways to cook Gumbo, from the classic Cajun and Creole styles, to the meats, seafood and vegetables added to give it a little twist. It all starts with a good Roux and my Mom’s Gumbo recipe is the inspiration for our Jambalaya Girl Gumbo Base with Roux Mix available at Costco. You get 4 packs in the box so I wanted to share a variety of ways you can cook each pack to make a hearty, flavorful stew or an easy one pot good gumbo recipe.

 

1 – Gumbalaya

Bring New Orleans right to your home – live stream WWOZ Radio broadcasting from the French Quarter, get a pot of Jambalaya and a pot of Gumbo cooking on your stove for a flavorful dining experience. Serve Gumbo over Jambalaya Rice instead of white rice for double the flavor!

2 – Easy Rotisserie Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Save time on the family meal by using the meat from Costco’s Rotisserie Chicken instead of cooking raw chicken.

You will need:

1 lb. Rotisserie Chicken meat, shredded

1 lb. Smoked Sausage, sliced

6 cups water

Follow the instructions on the box (boil the water, give it a good whisk) and dinner is done!

Other easy ways to cook: Instant Pot, Crock Pot / Slow Cooker, Stove Top 

 

3 – Seafood Gumbo

Shrimp, crawfish, crab and/or oysters all taste fantastic with this roux. To prepare it as a Seafood Gumbo – add seafood to pot 20 minutes before cooking is completed.

 

 

4 – Beef Stew Gumbo with Carrots, Potatoes, Celery and Mushrooms

This is a hearty one pot dish using Jambalaya Girl Gumbo Base with Roux. Recipe submitted by Jan from Tullahoma, TN. Thanks Jan!

6 –Lagniappe Leftovers!

A little something extra . . . with all of these dishes, if you’re lucky you will have some leftovers, and Gumbo tastes even better the next day.

Here’s a twist that comes from Southwest Louisiana, Cajun country – serve your leftover Gumbo over Potato Salad instead of rice. It’s delicious!
