Crazy Hip Blog Mama is having a Recipe Rally today!

Here's mine...

Auburn Gal’s Easy Chicken Gumbo

2 cans chicken, all white meat
2 lg cans tomato sauce
1 lg can diced tomatoes
1 sm can tomato paste
1 can Rotel
1 can diced chiles
2 lg tomato sauce cans full of water
2 ½ T chili powder
1 T cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sage
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp thyme
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 lg onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced/pressed/grated (can substitute 1 tsp chopped garlic from jar)
2 whole bay leaves
3 chicken bullion cubes

Place all ingredients in crock pot. Allow to cook until onion is tender. Remove bay leaves before serving.To increase spicy heat, like my husband wants, you can add crushed red pepper and Tabasco sauce.

To make the bullion cubes easier to dissolve, crush them in their wrappers. I use a hard spice container and whack it a few times.

You can also add shrimp or sausage or other normal gumbo-like ingredients if you like!
