Step 1

and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove meat to a bowl and set aside.
2. Add onion and cook until tender. Add pepper and salt and cook for about 3 minutes stirring occasionally.
3. Add garlic and creole seasoning and cook stirring for 1 minute.
4. Return meat to pot along with chicken broth and 1 cup water and simmer 5 minutes.
5. Drain 1 can of beans and rinse. With fork, mash beans.
6. Add mashed beans, and other can of beans (drained), along with rice.
7. Continue to cook, covered until rice is tender (add more broth is getting too thick)
8. Add okra at this point. If you add too soon, they will cook down and yu will only have the little white seeds.
9. Add spinach and simmer till tender.

This soup should be thick but should have liquid. So if getting to thick please add either water or broth to make a soup like dish.
