Delicious! Our o

Delicious! Our okra and tomatoes are coming on fast and I had an abundance I needed to use up. I made a double batch of this recipe and it is delicious. I did end up tweaking the seasoning a little. I added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to help cut the acid from the tomatoes a little. I also added 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper to give it a little umph. I think next time I would add some fresh corn for texture. I'm giving it 5 stars but the website keeps changing my rating so I hope it stays as a 5 star once I submit it.
