Roux-less Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

11-9-12 Update: I made this again last night. Delicious as always but I was unable to get the same smoked sausage I normally use so it was lacking that nice smokey flavor. My solution, I added smoked paprika and my Cajun House Seasoning at the end. SO good!  Also, be sure to add the pepper…
