Ancho Chile Rub

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Great on steaks and roasts. You can add a little red cayenne pepper for an extra kick, if you like it spicy.

Wow! I didn't have any ancho chile powder so chopped up some dried Scotch Bonnet chile including the seeds. In combination with the other spices it perfectly complimented the steak.
