How to Use Berbere Spice Blend

Often described as hot and spicy, berbere can be substituted in recipes calling for chili powder since it adds earthy, aromatic, and slightly sweet flavoring. Although its origins are North African, the spice works well in Italian and Mexican recipes that require some "heat." 

History of Berbere Spice Blend

The Ethiopian roots of berbere go deep into its history. Today we know Ethiopia as a land-locked country. Two thousand years ago, it was part of the Aksum kingdom, which included parts of modern day Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Yemen, and southern Saudi Arabia. More importantly, it bordered the Red Sea.
