Harissa
Harissa is a North African chile sauce that is really easy to make and bursting with flavor. I have this sauce in my fridge and I add it to chicken, beef, fish, pork, vegetables, and grains such as rice, couscous, or quinoa. I love this gourmet sauce on so many different dishes. You can make the sauce ahead and keep it for up to 1 week in your fridge.
