    I looked for a recipe of it. I would say it's a 5, maybe almost 6, for me.

    1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 jalapeños, seeded and chopped
    2 green onions, chopped (green part only)
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne

    You are brave. But then you don't have any problem with heartburn. I do.

    It's not spice that gives me heartburn; it's grease and some types of spices like tabasco sauce but I have medication for that.

    I had a patient come into the ER that ate a habanero on a bet. its only 100,000 to 300,000 SU not extremely hot but hot enough to make you think you are dying.

    No gumbo but I do make a meaty Creole red beans and rice. I roast my meat instead of the traditional stew. It brings a depth of flavor you can't get from boiling. I even roast the meat for soup.

    I boil a whole chicken then debone it save the broth and add 5 bunches of chopped green onions and one complete stalk of celery chopped. I make a roux in a cast iron skillet using 2 cups of flour using NO OIL. The roux is very important but its a bit of a pain to make properly. You need to make it a strong golden brown . The roux is then added to the broth and celery and onions and cooked chicken. Cook till celery is tender. Add Tony Chachere's Créole seasoning to taste then add Tony Chachere's File to taste (go slowly) After the Créole seasoning add salt to taste. Créole seasoning has salt so be careful. Serve over white rice with oyster crackers on the side.

    The trick to a good stock is to roast everything to bring out the natural sugars. This caramelization is an extra step but well worth it. I sometimes use a smoked ham hock but too much smokiness overpowers the sauce.
