    1. Take a pot and add oil, celery, onion, green pepper and garlic. Saute until tender.
    2. Add water, tomatoes, pepper, Tony Chachere’s seasoning and some salt.
    3. Add chicken, shrimp, sausage and okra.
    4. Cook about 15 minutes. Do not let it boil hard.
    5. Reduce heat. Add Tony’s instant roux. Stir constantly while adding or it will ball up. This will thicken it a little.
    6. Add Minute rice. This soaks up the extra juice. Stir.
    7. Let it cook 20 minutes on low while stirring so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
