I was excited that the ingredients in this recipe were all available to me - many aren't in the southwest. I followed the recipe to a tee. I think the amount of water could have been reduced as it turned out to be more of a soup than the gumbo. The broth did taste quite strong of onion, and overall it tasted kinda bland even after throwing in some more cajun seasoning at the end. Lastly, I typically expect gumbos to be reddish in color, and this recipe didn't yield that. Perhaps if a roux was added that could have solved the problem. Good recipe for those just wanting to try a tamer version of cajun food.
