Fire-Eater Habanero Wings

I don’t normally like to eat chicken wings that are so blazingly hot that you fall to the floor and curl up into a fetal position. I like great flavor with a bit of heat. These fire-eater habanero wings can satisfy your craving for serious heat, or if you’re like me, satisfy your craving for tasty, slightly hot, wings. It’s all in the amount of habanero sauce you add. For me, that means just enough to make my lips tingle and my eyes water. These wings came out fantastic, and are by far my favorite hot-and-spicy wings.

Fire-Eater Habanero WingsI cooked these Fire-Eater habanero wings using the Vortex insert on my Weber Performer grill. The end result are perfectly cooked wings, with nice crunchy skin, and great cooked-over-fire flavor

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
