This is a spicy version of za'atar from Northern Africa. It is great for sprinkling over tagines, vegetables, and pita sandwiches. It looks a bit different from the za'atar that I usually use (Middle Eastern and Mediterranean types), which is heavier with thyme. From the Flavors of Africa Cookbook, by Dave DeWitt (Chile pepper aficionado extraordinaire). Posted for ZWT4.
