Preparation

Note from Ricardo

Capsaicin, a substance contained in peppers, is very irritating to the eyes and skin. It is strongly recommended to handle peppers with gloves. You can replace the merguez sausage with chorizo, which is a pork sausage seasoned with chili; mild or spicy. These Spanish and South American sausages can be found fresh or dried and smoked. Longaniza Portuguese sausage is another version.
