- 2 Tbsp. butter shopping list
- 2 Tbsp. flour shopping list
- 1/2 large onion, chopped shopping list
- 1 med. red bell pepper, finely chopped shopping list
- 2 celery stalks, finely chopped shopping list
- 4 cloves minced garlic shopping list
- 1/2 - 1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper (or more, we like it HOT) shopping list
- 12.8 oz. package chicken andouille sausage(4 links) halved, quartered and sliced into bite size pieces (I used Trader Joes brand) shopping list
- 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme shopping list
- 1/2 tsp marjoram shopping list
- 6 cups chicken broth (approx.) I used my own stock, just poured in what I wanted, have made it with Swanson chicken broth before - about 3 cans shopping list
- I also threw in my leftover chicken, chopped (not necessary though) shopping list
- file powder (optional, not necessary) shopping list
How to make it
- After all the chopping is done and set aside, melt butter in large pot over med heat;
- Add flour and cook stirring constantly till it's a warm carmel color - PATIENCE REQ.
- You can make it darker, just be careful not to burn, or it will taste burnt.
- When it's the color you like, turn down heat or remove from if using electric, and add onions and cayenne powder, cook stirring till sizzling ends - approx. 2-3 minutes.
- Replace on heat (I use med. low) and add celery and garlic, cook stirring about 2-3 minutes.
- Add peppers and do the same.
- Andouille is already fully cooked, but I like to add it now and brown it a bit.
- Slowly add broth and stir, scraping any bits from bottom of pot.
- Add thyme and marjoram. Adjust seasoning to taste.
- Salt to taste, careful depending on how long you plan to simmer or reduce, it can get saltier.
- Bring to simmer and let simmer as long as you like, it will just reduce and thicken.
- If using file powder, add about 5 minutes before serving while still simmering.
- You can simmer it all day or eat it as soon as you like.
- If it doesn't get as thick as you like, add cornstarch and water mixture to it while simmering, or you can sprinkle Wondra over it. (I've done either before)
