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 Wings

I 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

Anchonero Hot BBQ Wings

One thing that I love about chicken wings is that there isn’t just one perfect combination of rub. Or sauce. There are an infinite number of great wings. These Anchonero Hot BBQ wings are just another example of a perfect combination of a spicy southwestern rub and sauce.

A little heat and a little sweet, you’d think I hadn’t eaten in a month when I devoured these Anchonero hot BBQ wings. ‘Anchonero’  is a combination of ‘ancho’ and ‘habenero’ chiles. You get great chile pepper flavor in every bite, that’s for sure. I found the spice level to be great, not too hot but definitely not mild either.

Anchonero Hot BBQ Wings

The Anchonero rub and BBQ sauce i used on these wings comes from AlbuKirky Seasonings, in yep, you guessed it, Albuquerque, New Mexico. They have lots of southwestern-flavored rubs and sauces and jellies. Check them out, you’ll love them all!
