Mexican Gumbo

By Sweta of @thetableofspice

"Who doesn't love Mexican food + gumbo! I love a good hearty soup, stew and for this Instance gumbo!! I love the spice and all the texture and flavors gumbo has to offer. I'm not a huge seafood fan when it comes to soups and stews so I wanted to change things up a bit and make gumbo my way. I hope you enjoy it and love it as much as I do. "
