I bought a jar of Mina Harissa on Amazon, a bright red Moroccan condiment that can be used with couscous, vegetables, meats or whatever you want, and my first thought was Eggs in Purgatory. It’s spicy and flavorful, made of a blend of six simple ingredients; red chili pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar and salt which also comes in a paste.
