Chipotle Hot WingsWho’s ready for some football?  The Big Game is coming up.  Are you planning a big party or just your family to watch it?

Either way you want amazing snacks, and what is better than spicy chicken wings with a creamy dressing?  Not much, right?

And regular hot wings are delish, but perhaps you want to change it up… keep people on their toes? :)

What about some Chipotle Hot Wings with Jalapeño Dressing?  Sounds awesome right? Well, they are! These are seriously good and perfect to eat at home or take to a friends house for a football party.

Head over to your local Vallarta and snag some La Morena products to make this amazing appetizer.   La Morena  provides US consumers with authenticate tasting, high quality products. Just like the ones you find in a Mexican home.  Their traditional recipes have been used for over 25 years.  If you love quality and tradition you will love La Morena.


Now I know you are looking over the ingredients and are wondering what the baking powder does.  Well, it’s amazing… it makes the wings SUPER crispy, as if you fried them without having to. So give it a shot!

Also, as a note, these wings are not quite as saucy as some other recipes.  If you love super saucy wings just double the sauce part (but you will find they are spicier).  Either way they would be great.

    I made these today and they were amazing! I think these are the best wings I have ever eaten, including ones from restaurants. All of my guests agreed. They were flavorful, tender, crispy and not greasy from being fried.

    I made a few changes out of mistake and necessity. First of all, the sauce was too hot for us so we cut it with some BBQ sauce. I also accidentally doubled the salt, garlic powder and onion powder in my dipping sauce and it was a bit too salty but still delicious.

    The next time I make this I will only make half the dipping sauce as it was way more than we needed (or I will make twice as many wings instead!). I am also going to try making the wings the same basic way but using different kinds of sauces.

    I see lots of wings in our future! Thank you for the recipe.
