2 servings

Serving size:
2 tortillas

Spray a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic in skillet until onion starts to soften. Cut tops and tips off okra and slice horizontally into pieces (should yield about 1/2 cup). Add okra and tomato and cook about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add hot sauce and stir, then remove from heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup hot filling in a line down the center of each tortilla, then roll up, first folding in the “bottom” of the tortilla, then rolling from one side to make a cylinder.
