Grilled Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings with Tequila and Lime

Chicken Wings

The Best Chicken Wings Ever

These Honey Chipotle chicken Wings are, by far, the best wings I have ever had.  They are sweet and savory, they are crispy and spicy yet incredibly tender and juicy on the inside.  They have best flavor of just about any barbecue sauce and we’ll talk about the secret to that in just a minute.  But I definitely think that the grilling definitely takes this recipe to a whole new level.  But don’t let that scare you if you don’t have a grill.  I think these spicy buffalo style wings would still be absolutely fantastic fried in oil or baked in the oven.

Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Sauce

This Chicken Wing Sauce is phenomenal.  I mean it.  I’t fantastic.  My secret for this recipe is definitely in the sauce.  I use Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce to start, then I add a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce and a fresh clove of Garlic but it doesn’t end there.  Since it’s got that pepper spice I balance it out with Tequila and Lime.  Now, of course, the Tequila is optional but the lime is definitely essential because it adds that Mexican style flavor everyone loves in their Mexican food.  But if you’re not shy, I highly recommend following this recipe to a “T” and add that Tequila.  It takes this Honey Chipotle Chicken Wing Sauce to whole new level.

Buffalo Hot Wings

IMG_0111Buffalo Hot Wings are EVERYWHERE!

These Day’s Buffalo Hot Wings are on menus across the board.  In fact I’m surprised if I don’t see it.  Have you tried to find them at your local grocery lately?  They’re getting scarce and more and more expensive everyday.  The funny thing is, back in the day, most places couldn’t get rid of them if they tried and most restaurants were just throwing them away with the carcass as leftovers.  Breast, legs and thighs were the desired meat portions up until a place in Buffalo NY put together a little recipe that put wings back on the map; The Anchor Bar!  Their recipe for Buffalo Hot Wings can be bought in either Medium, Hotter or Suicidal.  I’ve tried them all and every single one of them leaves your mouth on fire!  The bottom line is, wings are fantastic but not everyone has a pallet for that kind of heat.  So we’ve got to think a little outside of the box on this one and dive into something that isn’t just a real good crowd pleaser, but something we can pick up consistently and just about anywhere.

Before I introduce this recipe for Buffalo Hot Wings, I want you to understand that this is just a real basic tutorial to get you from A to Z when you are preparing your wings.  So don’t think for one minute you have to use my sauce recommendations if you already have a favorite.  But also, don’t think that for one minute that my recommendations should be ignored and aren’t SPOT ON!  Because what I have discovered recently just might go viral.  It’s that good.  And this sauce can now be purchased at your local grocery store from a little food chain you might of heard of called Taco Bell!  That’s right!  No more cramming extra hot sauce packets in your pockets before you leave because this bottle can already be sitting at home, right in your refrigerator!  This recipe is so good you might even see Taco Bell themselves adopt this idea and throw it on their Menu.  Wouldn’t that be sweet!  So let’s dive right in and show you how to make these Homemade Buffalo Hot Wings.
