Cocoa powder adds a rich flavor to the spice rub. Finished with a glaze of passion fruit liqueur barbecue sauce, these tender baby back ribs are sweetly sumptuous.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons McCormick Chili Powder

1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Basil Leaves

1 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon McCormick Onion Powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon McCormick Crushed Red Pepper

2 racks pork baby back ribs (about 4 pounds), white membrane removed

1 cup passion fruit nectar

3/4 cup barbecue sauce

2 tablespoons passion fruit liqueur

1. Mix brown sugar, cocoa powder, chili powder, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and red pepper in small bowl. Rub spice rub evenly on ribs. Wrap each rack tightly in foil. Place on roasting pan.

2. Bake in preheated 300 degree F oven 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until ribs are very tender.

3. Meanwhile, mix passion fruit nectar, barbecue sauce and passion fruit liqueur in small saucepan on medium heat. Simmer 30 minutes or until sauce is reduced by half.
