Crystal Hot Sauce isn’t just good. It’s amazingly good. It’s not super spicy, not at all. But it’s oh so flavorful. It’s perfect on any food, but when you make a Buffalo wing sauce from it you’ve got something wonderful. These Crystal hot sauce Buffalo wings are definitely some of the best wings I’ve ever had. They are finger-licking good.

Flat-Out Deliciously Good Wings

When you make the sauce for these Crystal hot sauce Buffalo wings you have to be mindful of two things: don’t have the heat too high and don’t cook it too long. You want just the slightest simmer. Enough to melt the butter, warm things up, and dissolve the seasonings. If you have the heat too high, or cook the sauce too long, the sauce will separate. A little separation is normal, you can whisk the ingredients and they’ll come back together. But if you overheat or overcook, it won’t get that nice consistency no matter how much you whisk.
