Several recipes call for it, but I don't see any recipies on Food 52 site.
Here's a tested (and loved) recipe for Harissa by TasteFood (just with a different spelling): http://www.food52.com/recipes...
I've seen several recipes on line at various sites. The one that I made was more of a wet paste rather than a dry spice mixture. It came out wicked hot: http://www.burntmouth.com/2007/09/african-spicy-harissa-chili-sauce.html
oh, you mean it shows up better if you spell it correctly? ;)
Thanks for the assist.
