Number of Servings: 6


    Oil, 1 Tbsp
    Onions, raw, 1 large
    Frozen Sliced Okra, 12 oz bag
    Sweet Peppers, green, red or a mix, 2 cups sliced OR one bag frozen 3 Pepper & Onion blend
    Frozen corn, 2 cups
    Canned Tomatoes, 3 can
    Black-eyed peas, 2 cups (if canned, rinse & drain)
    Bumble Bee Tiny Shrimp, 1/4cup/56g, 2 cans
    Thyme, ground, 2 tsp
    Oregano, ground, 1 tsp
    Paprika, .5 tsp
    Pepper, red or cayenne, .1/8 to 1/4 tsp
    Salt & Pepper to taste
    Smoked paprika, if available
    Optional: pre-cooked rice


Heat oil in a large deep skillet or dutch oven. Toss in the onions and cook for several minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients & heat thru.

Serve over rice if desired.

If you have smoked paprika I recommend adding 1/8 to 1/4 tsp as it really ups the flavor but is not necessary.

You could make this vegetarian by omitting the shrimp. Or you could make it meatier by adding ham or sausage with or without the shrimp, I just threw it in because I had some on hand.
