I used 3 jalapeno peppers and used Rotel instead of diced tomatoes. Also added a small can of the Rotel sauce for extra sauce and also used lemon pepper instead of regular pepper. It was delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse okra in a colander under hot water.
  2. (Rinsing okra gives it a cleaner taste and texture.) Heat oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté onion, stirring until golden, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes (including juice) and chile and boil, stirring until tomatoes are softened and liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add okra and cook, gently stirring, until okra is tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in salt and pepper and discard chile.
