In New Orleans, there are as many different varieties of gumbo as there are people who make it. Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice is a flavorful foundation, making it easy to create classics like shrimp & okra or chicken & sausage gumbo – or to invent a new signature gumbo of your own!
Gumbo is the quintessential dish of New Orleans, a city of diverse influences that formed a new culture greater than the sum of its parts. Those same influences are reflected in every bowl of gumbo. The dish is a rich and flavorful melting pot, just like its hometown.
