Sweet Chile Lime Chipotle Chicken Wings

Sweet smoky heat.  Three of my favorite words to hear….along with Chili Lime Chipotle.  :)

Just a couple months ago the Allrecipes.com AllStar group were sent some new sauces from Herdez to create some recipes for them.  This is one of the recipes I created and ended up being the one that Grumpy loved the best.  When I asked him what he thought his exact words were”see the sauce on my lips?  That ought to tell you if I liked it.  The more sauce the better!”.
I will be honest here and say I was truly shocked.  I was worried I wasn’t going to be able to make much with the sauces I received because Grumpy is not a fan of Mexican flavors.  I guess we can have our sauce and eat it too with this recipe!

This was a very simple recipe to put together.  Now that the new Herdez sauces are on the grocery shelves, you will be able to make this too!  You can print the recipe out below or if you are like me and like to keep an online file of recipes, you can go to allrecipes.com and save the recipe for Herdez Sweet Chile Lime Chipotle Chicken Wings in your recipe box there.  While you are there, check out the other recipes created with Herdez Sauces by fellow Allstar Members.  Enjoy!
