Clipped this from the Mobile Register several years back. It is great sauce for shrimp, chicken, pork chops, etc. Make ahead and freeze. Everyone I've made it for absolutely loves it!

  2. Add diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Add water or broth as needed to achieve desired consistency.
  3. Add mushrooms (optional). Add sugar, salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Simmer ten minutes. (I actually simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, as I feel this gives more time for flavors to blend.
  4. For chicken, cook one large stewing hen, cut family style, in salted water until tender. Drain. Ad 2 quarts Sauce Creolaise. Simmer 30 minutes.
