Chile Spice Rub

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_spice_rub.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2007

This rub is the reason we return over and over again to our favorite lunch spot in Burlington, Vermont: Penny Cluse Café. Although we prefer the blend of chiles given here, any combination of 12 dried chiles will give you a delicious, spicy result. Use on: Extra-firm tofu, shrimp, scallops, salmon, mahi-mahi, chicken, pork, beef, lamb

1 cup | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Stem and seed chiles. Spread them on a small baking sheet and roast until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Spread cumin seeds on the baking sheet and roast until smoking and very fragrant, about 6 minutes. Stir in oregano and roast for 2 minutes more. Add to the bowl with the chiles, then add paprika and salt; stir to combine. Let cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor and process until the mixture is finely ground.
  4. Measure out 2 tablespoons of the rub. Using your hands, rub it evenly onto 1 1/2 pounds (6 servings) of your chosen protein just before grilling.
