Mexican Chicken Wings Recipe

Mexican Chicken Wings Recipe

I make these spicy appetizers for parties and football games and never have any leftovers. The hot wings contrast nicely with the cool but zippy dip. When the wings run out, we use the extra cilantro dip on tortilla chips. -Barbara McConaughey, Houlton, Wisconsin
