Yowsa. I could’ve eaten an obscene amount of these baked taco wings. I really wasn’t expecting them to be so great. Boy o boy, I could not get enough of them. Great taco flavor with a lightly crunchy coating. And easy? It’s hard to get any easier to make. And on the side, a just-as-easy Ranch and chile pepper dipping sauce. I liked the sauce to much that I went on to make more and used it as a salad dressing!

Baked Taco Wings

The coating on these baked taco wings is pretty delicate, so be careful when flipping them. Just take a little extra time and they’ll be fantastic. I’m a big fan of taco seasoning, so I might admit to adding a bit extra for a little more flavor. These wings would be excellent as an appetizer at a party. The flavor is definitely different than traditional Buffalo wings. The dipping sauce has a nice chile pepper flavor to it, combined with a more traditional Ranch dressing.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour and taco seasoning.
  • Add the oil and stir to combine.
  • Working in batches, add the wings to the bowl and toss to coat. Press the wings into the mix to make sure you get all sides well coated. Place on the baking sheet, skin side down.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Gently flip the wings and cook another 20 minutes.
  • While the wings are cooking, place the dressing and chiles into a blender and processes until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Remove wings from oven and transfer to a serving platter with the dressing mix on the side.
  • Note: You can place the wings under the broiler for 1-2 minutes for a little more color, if desired but note that the coating will char if left in the oven too long. Keep an eye on them if you decide to do this.
