Spice Up Your Foods With Cocina Stina BBQ Rubs



I love to cook and grill, but only get to enjoy it maybe once a week - Sundays, as I work through the week and my husband just can't seem to wait,until I get home, to cook.  I love experimenting with new recipes, new foods and even trying to convert an oldie recipe into a new one.

I can probably say, 99% of the time when I prepare a dish, I'm using some kind of spice, herbs or sauces. Of course, salt and pepper are the main spices, but there are those recipes and everyday dishes, that just needs that extra something special...something that's going to make your dish stand out.



Shown here, are several different rubs, mainly for grilling and baking, but they can also add something extra to stove top dishes.  These BBQ rubs are by CocinaStina Etsy Shop.  CocinaStina has tons of different rubs to choose from, and are excellent, depending on what type of meat you are preparing. 


I was baking and frying up some chicken for Sunday night's dinner and decided to try the Sweet Mesquite Rub.  This rub is excellent for BBQ chicken and pork and contains a blend of: Smoked Mesquite Salt, onion, garlic, paprika, chili pepper, bell pepper, raw cane sugar, pepper and natural smoke flavor.  It's not too spicy and add a great texture to the skin of the chicken.

I also decided to do some wings and tried the Six Pepper Spice, as I was turning these babies into hot wings, but needed that extra kick.  The Six Pepper Spice contains: Salt, dehydrated chili pepper, white pepper, black pepper, red pepper flakes, mixed bell peppers, citric acid and caraway.  Can you see why this would be perfect for those hot wings?!!   Yes, it is a bit spicy, but that is what you want, when at times, your hot sauce just doesn't do the trick!

Are you looking for a different take on a BBQ rub? Something that adds a little cafe flavor to your ribs, roasts and mole sauces?  Try this Cafe BBQ Rub by CocinaStina Etsy Shop.  It has a blend of organic coffee granules, organic sucanat sugar, sea salt, tomato, roasted chili powder, red chili, garlic, pepper, mustard, onion and allspice.  This is great as a dry BBQ rub or as a finishing seasoning.
