This is a recipe I found on the Allrecipes website, posted by Ben. It can also be spelled 'Shakshouka'. It's a Tunisian dish that's similar to the Latin American dish Huevos Rancheros, and it's most often eaten for breakfast or lunch. Adjust the garlic and hot peppers to suit your own palate.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1⁄3 cups chopped onions
- 1 cup bell pepper, thinly sliced (any color)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 1⁄2 cups tomatoes, chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped (hot or mild, your choice)
- 4 eggs
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, bell peppers, and garlic; cook and stir until the vegetables have softened and the onion has turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Combine the tomatoes, cumin, paprika, salt, and chile pepper into a bowl and mix briefly. Pour the tomato mixture into the skillet, and stir to combine.
- Simmer, uncovered, until the tomato juices have cooked off, about 10 minutes. Make four indentations in the tomato mixture for the eggs. Crack the eggs into the indentations. Cover the skillet and let the eggs cook until they're firm but not dry, about 5 minutes.
