Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo Soup - CopyMy family loves soup and this is one of our favorites. I freeze okra in the summer just to use in gumbo.

3 to 4 cups chicken, cooked and chopped (I usually cook a whole chicken the day before and use leftovers to make this the next day)
2 cups or 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
1 carrot, chopped or sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
2 cups fresh okra or 1 (16 ounce) package frozen
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Cayenne or hot sauce to taste
1 cup long grain rice (Could use instant rice)
Put all ingredients in crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 to 7 hours.  Makes almost 3 quarts. ENJOY!

    Looks good but being from Canada’s east coast we do not care for Okra so would substitute peas or beans either fresh or frozen. Your recipes look delicious!!!
