Chile Rubbed Wings
From Food Network Magazine, Jan/Feb 2011
First make the marinade so you can give the wings plenty of time to get all happy in the fridge!
In a blender or food processor, place:
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 2 jalapenos
- 1/4 tsp cayenne (okay, so I used a little bit more)
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 1/2 tbsp oil
Put wings in a zip top bag, pour the marinade over, seal the bag and mush it around until all the wings are coated.
Park the wings in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Make the rub!
In a bowl, mix together the following spices:
- 1 1/2 tbsp ancho chile powder ( I couldn't find ancho chile powder so I used a package labled hot chile powder...just no smokiness)
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
To make this easy, I dumped the wings from the bag into the bowl with the rub. I then used my hands to mix it all up and evenly distribute the rub.
Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 450F for 20 minutes, flip the wings over and bake for another 20 minutes or until crispy.
In a large bowl, mix together: (ok, I mixed this in a small bowl, then poured it over so I wound up messing up 2 bowls...oops)
- 1/4 cup sriracha sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
Place the hot wings into the bowl and mix it up so that all of the wings are coated in this sweet and spicy goodness.
Place the wings back on the baking sheet and bake until crispy and sticky...you can broil them until crisp if you'd like.
Enjoy with something cooling such as veggies, chips, or milk...these were quite warm!!
Serve these tasty little wings of spicy goodness with some fresh veggie and dip to help cool the mouth...if you need..
Until next time, stay warm and eat well!!
