Delicious and simple to make. I used smoke-dried tomatoes in a bit of olive oil instead of bacon, and it turned out delicious. Also subbed a pinch of sugar for the hot sauce; I think it gives the dish more balance. I recommend you WAIT to put the tomatoes in, they cook down to nothing if you simmer them with the okra the whole time.
