1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon granulated salt

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Pinch black pepper

Pinch cayenne

1 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon minced red onions

1/2 tablespoon capers, minced

1/2 tablespoon minced chipotles en adobo

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Splash lemon juice

Salt

One 6-inch French roll

Unsalted butter
