Texican Spice Rub

Jul 22, 2011

Who doesn’t enjoy a spicey sweet combination.  With this rub, we combined the spice of chili pepper, with a bit of sweet from the brown sugar.  We decided that this would be interesting rubbed on grilled corn on the cob and butter.  It’s almost that time of year for the sweet corn from the farmer’s fields! 


  • 1/4 cu brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup Chili Powder (back off on this if you don’t care for really spicy)
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground thyme


Put all ingredients in a jar that has a lid that is tight.  Store in a cool and dark storage space to help it retain all of it’s flavors.
