We all know that the best food is fresh & locally grown. Here in the heart of Dixie, it's much easier to obtain fresh, local okra than green chile peppers. Plus, it's just plain fun to put a local spin on recipes sometimes.

How to Make Okra Rellenos (Cinco de Mayo, y'all)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash okra pods then slit each open lengthwise & remove the seeds. Do not split the pod completely; it needs to become a "jacket" for the filling.
  • 2Fill each de-seeded pod with pimento cheese spread (with or without jalapenos, homemade or not, your choice).
  • 3Dip each filled pod in milk & then dredge in flour that has been salted & peppered to taste.
  • 4Place cast iron skillet on stovetop, add peanut oil, & then once oil is hot, add okra rellenos. Do not overcrowd pan. Several frying sessions may be required depending on how much okra you are preparing.
  • 5Once nicely browned, remove rellenos with a slotted spoon, plate up & enjoy.
