I love savory chicken wings. I love sweet chicken wings. And I love wings that are a bit spicy. For me that usually means not super spicy. Well, I made an exception to that rule with these Five-Alarm Buffalo wings. I’m not sure what possessed me to do it, but I woke up one morning and decided I was going to make the hottest wings I could stand so I did. And you know what? I was totally surprised by just how much I loved them!

Five-Alarm Buffalo Wings

Tasty Spiciness

If you want to tame back the heat (thank you Frank’s RedHot!) on these five-alarm Buffalo wings just cut back on the habanero hot sauce. I went full-bore. Yeah, they were spicy and my eyes may have watered a bit but they were TASTY! Usually my argument against things super hot is that the spiciness hides the flavors. Not so on these wings. I’d make them again. And I’d have plenty of Ranch dressing around for dipping…

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
