This dish of poached eggs in spiced tomato sauce is said to have originated in Tunisia, where the word shakshuka means a “mixture” in Arabic slang. Its fame spread throughout the Middle East, and recently the dish has become popular in the United States. Enjoy it as a bright, appealing entrée at any time of the day. The tomato sauce includes sautéed onion and an Anaheim chile or a bell pepper, if you prefer less heat.

Add the tomato paste if the tomatoes taste slightly acidic
