When it comes to wings, some like it hot…and some like it REALLY hot!  Take your football food to the next level with my feisty and fiery recipe for “Red-Head Hot Wings.”  Dare your buddies and challenge your friends.  Who can handle these wings and who runs for a glass of milk.  It’s the Super Bowl of Spicy!


5-1/2 to 6 pounds chicken wings, thawed if frozen; patted dry with paper towels

Dry Spice Mixture:

4 Tablespoons smoked paprika
2 Tablespoons dry mustard
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons roasted cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2  teaspoon black pepper

Habanero Sauce:

1 cup butter
2 Tablespoons minced habanero peppers
2 Tablespoons minced serrano peppers
1/2 cup Tabasco sauce or other hot sauce
1/2 cup Asian Chili Garlic Sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Blue Cheese Sauce:

1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
8 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

2 bunches celery, cut into sticks for dipping

Heat oven to 375 degrees.   Line rimmed baking sheets or roasting pans with nonstick aluminum foil; set aside.  Snip pointed wing tips off chicken wings and discard, or save to make chicken stock.  Place wings in a large bowl or bowls, or into large zip lock bags.  Mix together all ingredients of dry spice mixture until combined and toss with wings in bowl or shake in bags until all wings are coated.  Place coated wings in one layer on foil-lined baking pans.  Bake for 30 minutes, turn wings, and bake another 20-30 minutes or until crispy.  While wings are baking, prepare other sauces.  For Habanero sauce:  Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add minced peppers and cook, stirring, until peppers are softened, about 2-3 minutes.  Add all remaining habanero sauce ingredients to pepper mixture and stir to combine.  Simmer for 3 minutes, cool slightly, then puree in blender or food processor.  Return to pan, cover and keep warm.  For Blue Cheese Sauce:  Place sour cream, mayonnaise, and crumbled blue cheese in a food processor or blender; blend until smooth.  Place in a serving dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until serving time.  To serve wings,  place hot, crispy wings on a serving platter.  Heat habanero sauce if it is not warm enough; pour into serving dish and place by wings.  Place blue cheese sauce by wings.  Place celery sticks by sauces.  Allow guests to dip wings in sauce or sauces, as desired.  Wings can also be dipped into habanero sauce before serving.  Serves  10-12.
