How to Make Pam's Gumbo


  1. Place all of this in a pot and let cook down for about 10-20 min.
    Add Tony Chachere Cajun Seasonings (to taste)you can always add more, so be careful.
    Salt to taste
  2. Take Tony Chachere Rue mix in a large glass and add hot tap water and mix it up well, then pour into your seasoning along with enough water that it will not be real thick(add more rue mix, by mixing with a little hot water,if you make it too thin, but remember your meat will thin it down some also). Let this simmer for about 30-40 minutes, watching to make sure it does not get too thick, but not too thin. Then add your meat, this can be seafood, chicken, sausage, gator, or turtle, or a mixture of any of the above. I prefer not to mix my meats, unless it is shrimp, crab, and oyster. Using 1 can of smoked oysters makes the taste really rich. Enjoy and the more Cajun Seasonings you add the hotter it will be, so go easy then you can add Red Hot to your own taste. If you use chicken, then boil your chicken with some onions, bell pepper, garlic and celery I always de-bone my chicken, and instead of using water use the broth off of the chicken.
    Test for salt you may have to add more to taste.
