Jalepeño Hot Wings
1/2 cup butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup pickled jalapeños, finely minced
1/4 cup Tapatio hot sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 pounds chicken wings, split
Kosher or sea salt, to taste
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Fresh jalapeños, sliced for garnish
Lime wedges, for garnish
Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Melt the butter and then stir in the garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the garlic is lightly browned.
Add minced jalapeños, hot sauce, ketchup and brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer the sauce for about 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Set aside.
Rinse the chicken wings and pat them dry. Generously season the chicken with salt and black pepper.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange chicken on the grill. Grill the chicken wings on one side for 20 minutes, then turn. Continue grilling 25 minutes, or until juices run clear.
Toss the wings warm in the jalapeño sauce and serve warm with the fresh jalapeño slices and lime wedges.
