Smoked Paprika Chipotle American Lamb Chops

# Servings: 4

4 American Lamb chops (loin, rib, sirloin or shoulder)
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 teaspoons coarse sea salt
2 teaspoons dark chili powder
1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic
Oil, as needed

In a mixing bowl, combine paprika, sugar, salt, chili powder, chipotle chile powder, onion powder, cumin and garlic. Pierce lamb with a fork several times on all sides; brush with oil then coat with the rub. Let stand for 1 hour before cooking.
Cook times will vary depending on thickness of chops. For 1-inch chops, broil or grill chops over medium heat for approximately 4 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Or, pan-fry chops then transfer to a baking sheet; finish cooking at 400°F until desired doneness.

*Smoked paprika can be found in specialty shops. Sweet paprika may be substituted.
