Here, different gumbos for different types of cooks.
1. For the first-timer. Even a simple gumbo—made with rotisserie chicken and store-bought chicken broth—relies on a slow-cooked roux for flavor. To turn this into a weeknight dish, make the roux on the weekend so the rest comes together fast.
2. For the shrimp lover. Use shrimp shells to make an easy stock, adding fresh shrimp just before serving.
