Creating dry rubs that I can use on everything from poultry, pork, meats, and seafood is something new and exciting to me! I love the process of concocting different spices together, putting them in a beautiful jar, and gifting them to friends for the holidays. I mean, grilling is fun and especially more so when you have a new rub!


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin power
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (depending on the amount of heat you life)
  • Zest of 1 lime, fresh
  • *Note: I don’t put sugar into my rubs, but you can add 1/8 teaspoon of brown sugar if you like that sweet/spicy flavor.


  • Combine all ingredients with a and mix well. Put them into an airtight jar.
  • Feel free to make a larger batch and keep it in the fridge.
  • Because of the fresh lime zest, it will not keep for more than ~10 days in the fridge.
