Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For berry salsa: In a medium bowl combine raspberries and salsa.

  • In a large bowl combine chili powder, cumin, coriander, and salt. Add okra and olive oil; toss to coat. Thread okra onto six sets of two parallel 10-inch-long skewers, leaving 1/4 inch between each piece. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until charred and crisp-tender, turning once. Remove okra from skewers.

  • Serve in corn tortillas with berry salsa, sour cream, and feta cheese.


Place tortillas between paper towels. Microwave on 100% power for 20 to 30 seconds. Or wrap in foil and place on the grill. Heat for 5 minutes, turning packet once.


When using wood skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before placing food on the skewers.
