Mexican Fiesta Chicken Wings


This time of year means lots of entertaining with family, friends and fellow work colleagues. Often when we have a bunch of people over, I go the Mexican Fiesta route. Margaritas, enchiladas, fajitas, chilli poppers, nachos and most importantly, spicy chicken wings. I usually spice them myself until I tasted’s Mexican Fiesta spice blend. It is delicious with just the right amount of heat. If you are looking for a bit more zing, try’s Jalapeno & Coriander sauce from their ‘’Chilli Addict’’ range. It’s a 4/10 kind of heat, “a walk in the park” as the bottle states. Love it.
