Expert Tips

Hot pepper sauce gives dishes a spicier flavor than ground red pepper.

To achieve a richer flavor, professional chefs use concentrated soup bases instead of canned broth. Try using 2 1/2 teaspoons concentrated chicken base mixed with 2 1/2 cups hot water in place of the chicken broth in this gumbo.

Hot cornbread and iced tea are perfect accompaniments to this Southern-inspired gumbo. For dessert, serve another Southern specialty: pecan pie or pecan cookies.
