These spicy sweet and sour wings are proof that it really doesn’t take a pantry full of ingredients to make a fantastic wing sauce. It truly doesn’t get any easier than this. Just open two bottles, pour into a bowl and mix. That’s it. And the cool part is that you get to decide how sweet you want it to be. Or how spicy. It’s impossible to mess up this sauce.

Spicy Sweet and Sour Wing

I opted for Crystal Hot sauce in my spicy sweet and sour wings sauce. It’s got great flavor and just the right heat level for me. Sure, I’ve got hotter hot sauces around. If I was craving hotter wings, I would’ve used them. And if I’m more on the even milder side, I’ve got sauces for that too.
