I use this when we make hot wings:
1 ripe mango peeled and chopped
6 habanero peppers chopped (use more or fewer, as desired)
3-4 cloves garlic chopped
1 teaspoon cayenne
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Juice from 1 small lime
Pinch of salt
¼ cup honey
Pat the wings as dry as you can get them. This will help with the crispiness.
Set the wings into a large bowl and season with baking powder, Cajun seasonings, flour, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Toss to get them nice and coated. The baking powder helps with the crispiness.
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Set the wings onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
Increase oven heat to 425 degrees and bake another 30 minutes, or until the wings are cooked through and the skins are nice and crispy. We have since bought a Air Cooker and now use it.
For the sauce, add the mango, habaneros, garlic, cayenne, vinegar, lime juice and a pinch of salt to a food processor. Process until nice and smooth.
Pour the sauce into a sauce pan with the honey and heat to medium-low, stirring frequently, until the sauce is warmed and the honey is incorporated, about 5 minutes or so.
Remove from heat and toss with the finished wings.
A simple salsa
1 pound vine ripened fresh tomatoes (roma tomatoes or plum tomatoes are great here)
2 jalapeno peppers (or use serranos or habaneros, or a combination)
1 small white onion
3 cloves garlic
1 packed cup cilantro cleaned and stemmed
Juice from 1 lime
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Add lime juice, cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.
I grow serranos, habaneros, jalapenos and several other. You can never have too many hot pepper plants. I picked a couple dozen just this morning and have many more plants that are still producing and many with new blossoms.
I carry a gun because I'm to young to die and to old to take a ass whipping.
