A traditional Cajun dish (maque choux) that is a great side dish for any meat. Something different!

Cook scallions, jalapenos, bell pepper, and salt in butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until scallions begin to brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until broken down into a sauce, about 15 minutes.Add corn and okra, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 15 minutes.
