This had a great flavor! I didn't notice the huge amount of chili pepper called for so used chili powder for half since I happened to have a large vat of it on hand. I ended up with a small peanut butter jar full of berbere. My friends who have eaten doro wat in Ethiopia said the flavor was right :-) Thanks for sharing!

This is delicious! I used this in Ethiopian Doro Wat (Chicken Stew) but will be putting it on all types of dishes...from omelets to popcorn to other Ethopian dishes! The recipe should be updated to say it make two and a quarter cups.

Excellent mixture and the recipe is easy to follow. Makes a ton and has quite a kick. I used this in an Ethiopian lentil stew tonight, and will use if to make doro wat next time around. I've got it stored in a tightly-sealed plastic container in my freezer, and I look forward to spicing up lots of future dishes, even non-African varieties. I'm glad I didn't halve it as initially planned because if you're going to be opening all those spice containers, might as well get the biggest return for your efforts! Thanks for posting.
