With her shrimp already thawed, Norma Reynolds realized she had no spices and created this simply impressive, healthy recipe on the spot one night! “Now a family favorite,” she laughs from Overland Park, Kansas, “friends will furnish the shrimp just to have me cook it this way.”
When this spicy stew's simmering on the stove, Beverly McDowell's family has a hard time waiting for dinner. "It's much like a thick tomato-based soup with a hearty mix of okra, brown rice and beans," she writes from Athens, Georgia. "Everyone leaves the table feeling satisfied...and eager to have it again soon."
