This was an easy recipe that the entire family loved. Adjusting spices for our taste is done with all recipes, so it was not a problem. I think adding carrots was a great idea because it added one more vegetable for us to eat.

I agree that this recipe is better with about 1/2 tsp of cayenne, but once you add that, it is a terrific meal. I also use chicken or turkey sausage instead of pork which lowers the fat content as well. I've made it three or four times over the past few months.

It was okay after I added more spices. It's a little bland if you like real cajun food

No self-respecting Cajun would use carrots in a gumbo. The recipe is not nearly spicy enough.
