Harissa is a north/east African sauce. How hot depends on the blend of dried pepper that you throw in. I almost always roast a few hot chiles to go along with the red bells. Im growing Ethopian paprika this year just to be able to make harissa with an african chile. mix up everything but the oil in a blender. when smooth, add oil in a thin stream.
