In large soup pan place water and broth. Heat over medium high heat. Cut chicken and sausage into bite size pieces. Set aside. Add veggies to pan and allow to cook for 7 minutes. Add chicken and sausage. Stir to combine. Add rest of items except shrimp lower heat to medium low after gumbo comes to a slow boil. Stir gumbo often. After gumbo has cooked for 1 hour add shrimp and cook for up to 1 hour more. Serve warm over rice. For a hotter gumbo add more hot sauce. 1 small can of jalapeños can be used in place of hot sauce.

Now I leave you with more info about this amazing woman:
My name is Chimica. I'm a new mom and a long term writer. I love cooking. I decide late in 2008 while I was still pregnant that I really should write down my most loved recipes. My main thought was that I didn't want to forget those great tasting meals when I get older. Soon I'll be releasing a poetry book and a fantasy and I'm even considering writing an actual romance novel. I'm also a crafter with an on line store.
I work very hard with everything I do; from being a mother to being a business owner to being a writer. And what makes me work so much harder and makes people understand me even more is that I'm a 20 years old proud African American woman.
