Ancho Chili Rubbed Leg of Lamb with Mint Yogurt Sauce

Ancho Chili Rubbed Leg of Lamb with Mint Yogurt Sauce is an oh-so easy-to-make dinner for this year’s Easter festivities! The spicy ancho chili rub on the grilled lamb gives the meat a savory crust that is simply irresistible. Pair that with a tarty and creamy mint yogurt sauce, and you have a new lamb tradition for your Easter dinner table for years to come!

Serving up leg of lamb at Easter dinner was never a family tradition of mine. Instead, there was always a honey-baked ham and a large brunch. Now, I love brunch but I reallllllllly do NOT like ham.

Honey-baked ham, specifically.

I can eat the heck out of a ham and cheese sandwich or a Cuban sandwich, but when it comes to a giant ham, I couldn’t be less interested.

So I turned to leg of lamb as soon as I got old enough (read: adult enough) to start cooking Easter dinner or brunch for myself. I nixed the giant ham and decided a leg of lamb was so much tastier.

1. There’s nothing like a breakfast burrito to make a weekend truly excellent… This one just happened to be the size of my head and I might be finishing up the (surprisingly little) leftovers this morning. This gem is from Fooducopia in Denver, CO (which I’ll be featuring on a new Mile High Wanderings soon!).
