About

This Moroccan pepper spread is a wonderfully flavorful condiment. Spread it on sandwiches or use it as a rub on meat you intend to grill. I’ve never liked the jarred varieties, but this fresh spread tastes top notch, is easy to make and will last several months in the fridge.

NOTE* I USED A COMBINATION OF
NEW MEXICO CHILIES,
CALIFORNIA CHILIES AND ANCHO CHILIES
