A former roommate of mine gave me the basic recipe for this spicy aromatic stew. It's great comfort food in cold weather, and fantastic fiery food for hot weather--it all depends on what you serve with it! I love it over steamed couscous or pieces of spongy bread, myself. Don't be put off by the long ingredient list...you are in for 10-15 minutes of chopping and that's it! Assemble this in your crock the night before and you'll have dinner done before you know it the next day!
