Corn, okra and tomatoes

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can Nibblets yellow corn; liquid poured off
2 cans Stewed tomatoes; (some folks like to pulse a time or two in food processor to have smaller chunks of tomato)
½ pounds To 1 lb. okra; (with the ends cut off and cut into small pieces)
2 \N Pieces of bacon
1 small Onion; chopped
\N \N Margarine or butter
2 \N Cloves of garlic; crushed through garlic press
\N \N Salt; (about a tsp.) and Pepper to taste
1 \N Little dashes of Louisiana hot sauce; (up to 2)

In a medium-sized pot, I usually use Teflon-coated, I begin rendering the grease from 2 pieces of bacon (low heat, don't brown bacon). In a small fry pan, I use approx. 2 tbsp. butter, melt the butter and saute the onion until almost clear and add the crushed garlic. Finish sauteing.

After the grease is rendered from bacon, add the 2 cans stewed tomatoes, the corn, the okra, and the sauteed onions and garlic. Add approx. 1 tsp.

of salt and sprinkle a little pepper to taste. Also, add 1 or 2 little dashes of Louisiana hot sauce. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Turn down low and let simmer 30 to 40 minutes, or until okra is tender. I usually remove the bacon strips at this time before serving it up. It's yummy!

Shortcut: I know in the South, they sell okra, corn and tomatoes canned together in the grocery store. Render grease from bacon. Add 2 or 3 cans of this mixture. I always still add a can of nibblets corn because we love corn! Add in onions and garlic, seasonings and continue as above. It really is great over white rice!
