Don’t fear the habanero. Don’t worry about the heat. Well, ok, maybe a little. But it’s really tamed by the fantastic mango sauce. This copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero sauce might well be the perfect combination of sweet and heat. This is what Buffalo wing sauce wants to be when it grows up. It is nothing but awesome.
I used a can of mango nectar when I made this copycat Buffalo Wild Wings mango habanero sauce. I found it in the Hispanic foods section of my grocery store. If you can’t find it, you might find it in the juice section. In a pinch, you can substitute mango that has been diced and pureed until very smooth. In that case you’ll probably need to strain the sauce before using.
Remember that if you have to refrigerate your open bottle of wing sauce to let it sit out on the counter for at least 30 minutes before using. You don’t want to ‘shock’ hot, just-cooked wings with a cold sauce.
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.
