Unlike most chile paste recipes, this one calls for fresh, not dried, chiles. It is used in many recipes, served as a condiment to accompany meats, or mixed with feta cheese or labna for a Gaza-style breakfast with flatbread.  

Directions

Pulse the peppers in a  food processor — or else grind them with a mortar and pestle — in small batches until finely ground, but not yet a paste. Add salt. Mix well. Pour into containers and cover with a layer of olive oil. Use immediately.
