Dry Rubs - Mexicano Style

Chi-Girl | Jan 23, 2006 09:05 AM

So I caught the tail end of Rick Bayless' Mexico: One Plate at a Time on Saturday. The theme was the grill and he made a dry rub for a steak that looked amazing. I caught the spices he used, but alas, couldn't find paper fast enough to get the proportions of his rub.

He used:

-finely ground ancho chiles
-Mexican Oregano
-fresh garlic
-brown sugar
-freshly squeezed orange juice

I made my own this weekend and wound up making somewhat decent fajitas. But mine was all dry rub until a squeeze of lime at the last minute"

-finely ground guajillo chiles (couldn't find ground anchos at my Mexican grocier)
-brown sugar
-garlic powder

I know I used too much cinnamon since the bf picked up on it and wasn't happy. Does anyone have a good Mexican dry rub and/or Rick's?
