Let's make some Harissa. Harissa is a North African chili pepper paste. It's super versatile and easy to make. It adds a ton of flavor to all of your favorite dishes. I don't make mine too hot because I like to add it to several meals. Here's my recipe for Harissa and 7 ways to use it this week to elevate your meals.
