Chipotle Rub

3/9/2012 Chef Rick Bayless

Servings: 1 1/2 cups

Adobo Seco de Chile Chipotle

The flavors of this dry rub are similar to those of the Garlicky Ancho Chile Rub, with one exception: the sweet smokiness makes it perfect for anything made with pork or with roasted “starchy” vegetables (potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes).


In a bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until thoroughly blended. Scoop into a container, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to a month or more.
