The Chechebsa

Tear your Kita into small pieces.
In a frying pan add your Niter Kibe and Berbere and set the oven to medium.
Once the butter has melted add the pieces of kita into the pan and stir them all well so all the pieces soak in the Niter Kibe and Berbere mix.

Cook this for a few mins and drain and dry on paper towels.
