The African, Caribbean, and Asian populations of New York share a common love of spice and okra, so we've combined the two. If habanero chiles are too spicy for you, use a serrano or jalapeño chile instead. Rinsing your okra gives it a cleaner taste and texture. Active time: 15 min Start to finish: 15 min

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Okra

2 cups okra
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped

2 jalepeno peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Rinse okra in a colander under hot water.
