We love this Instant Pot Gumbo because it’s very filling, comforting and so good! And it reminds me of our trip to New Orleans.

New Orleans Gumbo

When we visited New Orleans a couple of years ago we loved the city and the food. We ate lunch at The Famous Gumbo Pot. My husband ordered a big bowl of gumbo that came with a thick crusty bread and I had a Shrimp Po’Boy.

They both were delicious and we enjoyed our food sitting outside on the patio soaking up the atmosphere. There is nothing like New Orleans! I love people watching when I’m there.

I like to add a little variety to our meals and this Instant Pot Gumbo is perfect when I want something different for dinner. It’s a thick and hearty Southern recipe that is so easy and delicious!

Since I work full time and we have so much going on, keeping meals simple and easy allows me to get dinner on the table fast and helps me avoid getting take-out all the time. This is why I love my Instant Pot and Slow Cooker.
