This Spicy Keto Tomato Dip, which I've dubbed Moroccan Ketchup, since it is sort of a marriage of the flavors of ketchup and harissa (a popular spicy condiment in Moroccan cuisine), is easy to make and requires very little actually cooking. There is no added sugar, which keeps the carbs pretty low in this ketchup.
It is a great addition to a holiday buffet spread,since it allows guests to spice up milder dishes if they like. The dip would serve very well on the side of hummus. It would also work well as a spread.
