Yummy. I cut down on the cayenne a lot, since what I have is African bird pepper and has 90,000 heat units... I think I used about 1/4 tsp and it was still kickin'. I followed Cookgirl's suggestion and used this to rub a pound of firm tofu. I was really generous with the rub and coated the tofu very well and used a full recipe for the pound. I baked the tofu at 400 for about 1/2 an hour and it turned out great. Nice and flavorful. The flavor was nice and pretty well balanced between sweet and spicy. I think it would be a great idea to marinade your meat (or tofu!) in some lime juice, then rub with this or sprinkle some lime juice over top after cooking... I did feel it needed a bit of tang. But overall, very good!
Really good, added a Scotch Bonnet to it for a real kick, Marinaded meat for 24 hours!
Excellent! My DH hates "spicy, " so I left out the cayenne, but otherwise made according to the recipe.
