this was wonderful. the leftovers were even more flavourful the next day. i did use a bag of frozen okra, and added a can of corn, some cajun spice, garlic, and to speed it up i added a teaspoon of cornstarch for viscosity. a perfect compliment to cornmeal crusted catfish. took no time at all. i'd also make this as a vegetarian main -dish stew and add more tomatoes and a can of chickpeas.

I added one half pound cooked and pealed 25 count shrimp and two diced jalapinos to heat it up a bit. Also have substituted Rotel spiced tomatoes in leiu of regular canned tomatoes on several ocasions. Was outstanding both ways.

This wasn't as good as I hoped. I'd cut the okra into slices, instead of leaving the whole pods. The black pepper was too strong, but other seasoning felt lacking. I would stir in black-eyed peas next time to make this a hearty main dish.
