Sweet and spicy rub for pork tenderloins. Just coat, let stand for 20 minutes and grill! Goes great with polenta or mashed yams.

My boyfriend and I have made this twice and will be making it again and again! The first time, I knocked down the chipotle powder by half and it was still WAY too hot for me, but not for him. The second time, I only used 1 T., added 1/2 tsp more of onion and garlic powder, and 1 T. more of brown sugar. We also marinated the pork this time in pineapple juice and brown sugar for several hours before cooking. Both times, I sprayed a large baking dish and baked at 325 until the internal temp was close to 160. Came out very juicy and with just enough spice for me this time! DELICIOUS!

Outstanding recipe! Have made this a couple of times trying to find the right mix for my family. The first time I made it, I loved it and the husband couldn't eat it. After tinkering with this recipe, here's what works for us. Marinate the pork for 24 hours in pineapple juice, minced garlic and onions, then overnight in the spice rub. I reduced the chipotle powder to 1.5 tbs and increased the brown sugar to 5 tbs. Just enough heat to keep it interesting without the extreme afterburn. Fabulous!

Great as long as you like spicy. Cooked indoors with oven. I found the chipolte spice at Linens N Things.
