Southwestern Chipotle Steak Rub (Spicy)

From Melanie of Colorado
Southwestern Chipotle Steak Rub (Spicy)
Makes enough for 4 Steaks

3 T. Ground Chipotle Pepper Seasoning
3 T. Chili Powder
1-1/2 T. Ground Cumin
3 T. Lime Zest*
3 T. Garlic Salt
3 T. Onion Powder
3 T. Kosher Salt

Mix all ingredients together.  Press rub into both sides of each steak
and wrap in plastic wrap.  Let rest 10 minutes, then grill or pan-fry
to desired doneness.
*For lime zest: wash and remove lime peel.  Grate peel with very fine grater.  One average-size lime yields about 1 T. zest.
