Sunday Gumbo

My husband loves this Gumbo, I have altered some of the ingredients for a less spicy dish, but you can add more cayenne if you like a spicy gumbo.

1 lb. Italian turkey sausage (lean)
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 lb. uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

In large pot, brown sausage and chicken in oil. Remove, and keep warm. In drippings, saute red pepper, onion, celery til tender. Stir in seasonings, cook 5 minutes. Stir in broth and sausage/chicken mix, bring it to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20-25 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and shrimp, and cook 10 minutes, or until shrimp turn pink, stirring occasionally. Serve with a scoop of rice in a bowl, and spoon Gumbo on top. It makes quite a bit, I'm not sure of the serving size, maybe 8 servings (I'm guessing here).
