1 jalapeno, finely chopped (optional)

In a large skillet, saute onion and corn in hot oil until onion becomes translucent.  Add chile powder, herbs, garlic, chiles, okra and jalapeno.  Saute for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add squash and saute for another 5 minutes.  Add purslane, sautee for 5 last minutes.
