* Based on a 2000 calorie diet.


  • 1 package Miracle Rice, rinsed, boiled and drained.
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 ribs celery chopped
  • 1 can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
  • 1 pack of your favorite brand smoked sausage, sliced or cubed (I use turkey, less calories)
  • 8 cups sliced fresh or frozen okra
  • 2 pounds shrimp (peeled)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Or Tony Chachere's Seasoning or your favorite brand
  • Total cooking time is 1 hour.


  1. Add oil to heavy bottom pot.
  2. When oil is hot add the onions. Cook until onions start to brown.
  3. Add the bell peppers.
  4. Cook on high heat until peppers start to brown. At this point the onions will begin to look burnt but this is what will darken your gumbo.
  5. Add celery and cook until celery begins to soften. Add the Rotel.
  6. Cook until all the water has cooked out. This may take about 4 minutes.
