I admit, not everything in this sauce screams Cajun, but these Cajun Buffalo wings are so darned tasty I didn’t care. Everything I love is in this sauce which explains my addiction to it. I cannot stop eating wings tossed in it. A little heat, lots of (yummy) garlic, and just the right amount of traditional Buffalo flavor, this sauce is a real winner.
If you want your Cajun Buffalo wings to be even more on the spicy side, use Frank’s RedHot Hot Buffalo wing sauce. Or go with mild for less heat. I opted for less heat this time and really enjoyed it. Not every wing sauce has to sear the roof of your mouth.
You’ll love the flavors of these wings as much as I did. It’s great stuff! For a nice twist also try my Cajun Bay wings.
I have to say that here in the mid-west, I hadn’t had much of a history with Hatch chiles until a few years ago when I bought an entire case of them and roasted them. I’ve been searching them out ever since. To my pleasant surprise, along came Frederik’s by Meijer Hatch Chile wings sauce. This sauce is nice and creamy and not too thick. I could see the Hatch (and green) chiles floating happily in the bottle. I knew I was in for goodness.
Frederik’s by Meijer Hatch Chile wings sauce has a hint of garlic. And just the slightly amount of heat. And plenty of great balanced pepper flavors. I mean you can take the peppers! Don’t laugh. I’ve had sauces that said they tasted like something-or-other and they didn’t even come close. This sauce delivers on its pepper promise.
If I am serving my wings with Ranch or blue cheese or some other sauce, I use these little dipping cups. They’re the perfect size for dipping wings, nuggets, tenders and even vegetables.
For me, June Moon Nashville wings are like a sweet version of one of my favorite things to eat, Nashville hot chicken. Not quite as spicy as you can get, but packed with plenty of cayenne heat and flavor. Add a bit of honey and brown sugar to tame that heat a bit and offset the earthiness from the pepper. These are mighty good wings, and ones that I enjoyed immensely. I’m a big fan of Nashville hot chicken, and although this isn’t the thick lard-based paste you get on the real thing, this sauce reminds me a lot of the African-inspired dish.
I wasn’t shy with the sauce when I made some June Moon Nashville wings. I sampled the sauce right out of the bottle as soon as I opened it and knew I was in for a treat. So, no messing around. I added some to my right-out-of-the-air-fryer wings and tossed them good. Then I added a bit more and tossed some more. I really enjoyed the heavy cayenne flavor.
