This side dish is an excellent acccompaniment to any Cajun or Creole entree. Maque Choux usually does not contain okra, that's my little enhancement!

This is a great recipe. Left out the okra and used green and red peppers instead and more jalapenos. Super tasty!

Oh my gosh this is SOOO good! My husband wanted a change of pace and has always told me that cajun food is very good, so i tried this recipe and it is wonderful! The instructions were easy to follow, and it was easy to make. I did have to substitute whole okra instead of the sliced, but it was yummy. It is also very pleasing to the eye!
