Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to have non-gooey okra. These little guys are what finally got me to cross over into the land of the okra-lover. Crispy and spicy, they rarely make the short distance from the counter to the kitchen table and have become one of our favorite summer snacks. Yes… okra can be a snack!

1 tablespoon of olive oil
ancho chile powder
