Shashuka

This is a dish originally from Morocco but popular throughout North Africa and the Middle East. It has tomatoes, peppers, onions, and lots of spices. Then comes the eggs cooked in the sauce, so when you break the yolks, they enhance the dish. There is some heat that comes with this dish, so if it’s too hot, cool it off with some honey. I hope you like it
