First time making gumbo. Just need some advice. Ive been watching videos so I have the basics (more or less). I would say this is a two part question tied into one:
I'm a big fan of chipotle peppers, and I was thinking of adding them in for spice, though I think chipotle peppers work best with a tomato base. Only thing is, I was told not to add tomato in gumbo.
I would basically be replacing the water with tomato.
Let me know what you think. maybe just some cayenne powder would be enough spice.
