Mitmita (pronounced mitʼmitʼa) is an Ethiopian seasoning that appeals to berbere spice lovers that want a little extra kick. Spicy and complex, it begins with a burst of heat from authentic birds eye chili powder, adding a kiss of savory sea salt before finishing out with resinous notes of cardamom and clove. The result is a spice blend that seems custom-made for adding nuanced flavors and a wake-you-up dose of spice to proteins like beef, as well as hearty soups and stews. Not for the faint of heart, Mitmita is used heavily in Ethiopian cuisine to delight lovers of spices that can handle their heat. If you've had a craving for something a little different that will inspire seconds - not yawns - try a pinch of Mitmita Ethiopian seasoning from USimplySeason during your next authentic meal.
