  • 2 serrano chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Preparation

  1. 1. In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion and fennel and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, 3 minutes. Add both chiles and the bell pepper and season with salt. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, harissa and paprika and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and water and simmer over low heat until the sauce is thickened, 10 minutes.
