Harissa is sort of like North African hot sauce, but with a thicker, pastier consistency. (Think more sriracha than Cholula.) A staple condiment in Tunisian cuisine, it’s also a great way to use up some of those hot peppers from your garden.
Harissa is a fiery north African spice paste that is used as a condiment and in cooked dishes. It can be hard to track down if you don't have an ethnic grocer nearby. Luckily, it's easy enough to make and can yourself!
