Spanish Okra

Morsels of Life - Spanish Okra - Okra, sliced and then simmered with tomatoes and onions for a Spanish Okra. Chili powder gives this dish an extra kick!

I'd gotten some okra, planning to make some Fried Okra. Then I got back and didn't feel like frying the okra. What to do? I looked around at what materials I had around and decided to make some Spanish Okra. I know okra's got a reputation for having a slimy goo when cooked. It's useful for thickening up dishes, but James likes to avoid the slimy feeling. Slicing the okra into small pieces, cooking with higher heat, and cooking alongside acidic ingredients all help decrease the goo, and they're all methods used in this recipe!

Do you like your okra thick and slimy or do you prefer to cook the slime out?
