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 might well be the perfect combination of sweet and heat. This is what Buffalo wing sauce wants to be when it grows up. This copycat Buffalo Wild Wings mango habanero sauce is nothing but awesome.

Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero Wings

I used a can of mango nectar when I made this copycat Buffalo Wild Wings mango habanero sauce. It can be found in the Hispanic foods section of your 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.
