Would it be weird to put okra in chili?

in the "stixs" in Florida - the true southerners add okra to their chili - zucchini too sometimes... it adds to the flavor, stretches the meal and adds a certain texture too!

Yes, a little strange. They don't add much flavor on their own and only texture the 'snottiness' isn't for everyone. Try for gumbo or jambalaya.
I love okra with lots of butter and salt and a splash of vinegar.

I guess you could try it. But, doesn't okra get gummy or snotty when boiled. I would sure try it if you like okra. Make a small test batch. Let us know how it was.

I'm pretty sure it would add a gummy or slimy texture to a chili. I would hate to ruin a good chili with that. Far better in a gumbo where it will be enjoyed.

Yes, but if it tastes good somehow because of the okra, no one will mind.

Hey! Not weird at all, it would be tasty! Kind of like a flair of gumbo in your chilli. Go for it!
