Tangy Tapatio Barbecue Wings

I love traditional Buffalo-style chicken wings. And I love traditional barbecued chicken slathered in sauce. So why not combine my two loves into a single bite? These tangy Tapatio barbecue wings do that and more. The sauce is spot-on crazy good. Not too ketchupy. Not too vinegary. It has just the right kick with just the right consistency.

Tangy Tapatio Barbecue Wings

These tangy Tapatio barbecue wings are quickly becoming a staple in our household. The sauce is so easy to make and all of the ingredients are something we always have on hand. As an added bonus, the sauce is also fantastic on grilled chicken, hamburgers and smoked pulled pork and brisket. It’s a great all-around sauce.
