Ingredients for Green Chile Rub

About Spiceology spices: We love buying spices in bulk from Spiceology and they also offer home sizes too.  They have the best selection and the best quality that we have found. Some varieties can also be found at Amazon.

We have only recently discovered jalapeno powder and love it. The flavor is bold but not overly spicy and adds great flavor to everything on the grill. We’ve added it to everything from pasta sauce to barbecue sauce and it really changes up the flavor profile.

    1. Hi Nancy,
      The green chile powder we use has very little heat. We are using the Spiceology brand if that helps. As far as the ads, they are what makes these recipes free for everyone.

  1. Is there a substitute that can be used instead of the green chili powder? Perhaps a more commonly found spice?
