If you have a large stock or stew pot you can quadruple this recipe for larger batches if you have a gathering, party, or just want extras to freeze for later on. I personally quadruple everything (4X the ingredients) and 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts. You may add extra bell peppers and/or onions if you are missing celery and vice versa. I also add/use 2lbs of cooked peeled (tail off) shrimp and 2lbs langoustine lobster tails. You may also used any type of spicy smoked or kielbasa sausage. You may also add some Louisiana hot sauce, as little or as much as you like, for a little kick.
