Harissa is a Moroccan spicy condiment made with  red chiles peppers and small hot chili peppers and spices. We eat harissa with braised dishes, sandwiches, soups, salads, couscous, omelets and etc. My husband likes to mix it with ketchup and dip fries in it or spread it on a burger bun. You can buy the peppers in Middle Eastern stores and even in some supermarkets (I buy them at Mexican supermarket). You’ll need a meat grinder or a food processor (blender won’t work).
