I love playing with dried chiles and one day decided to put together a marinade that was low in sodium, since it's hard to find them in the stores. Since then I've used it as a paste rub, and a wet rub also, it all depends on how much olive oil you use. Marinating overnight gives you mouth watering flavor on chicken or beef. This is my go to recipe for grilling up something awesome.
