Grilled Spicy Chicken Wings Recipe

These Tex-Mex inspired wings are great as a party appetizer, but I also use them for dinner. Just pair the wings with a spicy rice and bean dish and a salad.—Julie Butler, Puyallup, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 whole chicken wings (about 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) green enchilada sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup mild green taco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine enchilada sauce and lime juice. Add wings; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine taco sauce and butter. Drain chicken wings and discard marinade. Grill wings, covered, over indirect medium heat for 10 minutes. Turn; grill 10-20 minutes longer or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with sauce. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
