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 eat.art’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 eat.art’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.
Free range chicken wings (as much as you like)
wooden skewers soaked in water for 15 minutes
eat.art Mexican Fiesta spice blend
eat.art Chilli Addict Jalapeno & Coriander sauce (optional)
Preheat the oven to 220°C.
Stretch the wings open and skewer them onto the sticks.
Rub with olive oil and as much eat.art Mexican Fiesta spice as you like.
Roast for 30 – 35 minutes or until they are “blackened” and crispy.
Serve with grilled corn, guaco, sour cream, fresh coriander and nachos.
Season with grilled lemon and eat.art’s Jalapeno & Coriander sauce.
Pimp the sour cream up by adding some chopped tomato, spring onion and coriander.
