You can leave the tequila out from this recipe for a fantastic, alcohol-free sorbet, but I appreciate the subtle vegetal complexity good tequila brings.
'aleppo' on Serious Eats
Many rubs have long ingredient lists that combine many different flavors. But using a minimal approach can allow you to get to know a particular spice a bit better, and also allows the flavor of the meat to come to the forefront. Although this rub uses Aleppo pepper (a dried Turkish spice), ground Ancho can often be easier to find, and the two have very similar taste profiles. If substituting Ancho for Aleppo, you may want to add more salt to your rub (Aleppo peppers are often salted during their drying process).
