COCOA RUBBED ribs with passion fruit barbecue sauce

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.

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 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.
