Spiced Chili Rub

Yield Makes about 1 1/2 tablespoons, enough for 1 steak about 4 by 10 inches
Notes: This rub is made for grilled steak. For a more distinct chili flavor, use mild California or New Mexico ground chilies instead of seasoned chili powder. Rub into meat; grill. Then squeeze juice from orange wedges onto sliced meat and season with salt. Make a single batch of rub, or a larger quantity to store airtight indefinitely.
