You may want to substitute diced tomatoes for the tomatoes and green chilies if your family prefers mild flavors.
If your family doesn't like the texture or taste of okra, try substituting about 1-½ cups of zucchini chopped into large pieces for the okra. If using zucchini, I recommend sautéing it in the pan in a little oil before adding the other vegetables to give it a little time to cook. When it is starting to soften and shrink, go ahead and add the black beans, tomatoes, and corn.
