This is similar to a cocktail type sauce but made with North African inspired spices. It is a little spicy, but not disturbingly so. If you want it even more hot than Red Hot, go ahead and add additional cayenne pepper.

I made a small batch of this to serve as a dipping sauce with Sesame Seed Chicken (A Turkish Meze). I drained the canned tomatoes and added the juice a little at a time to thin the sauce. The sauce has a spicy and smoky flavor. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6.
