I make mine similar to this. I always have a freezer stocked with fresh, frozen okra. I use a can of tomatoes with green chilies. I put the okra in a sauce pan with the can of tomatoes with green chilies and bring it to a boil and then turn down to simmer for about 20 minutes or until okra is tender.
