My longtime friend and drinking buddy, Jane Nolan, is here with her to-die-for chicken wing appetizer. This is so good I can make a meal of it and not have one ounce of guilt. The kitchen is all yours, Jane!

Chipotle Honey-Lime Chicken Wings

5 pounds of wings. Use the first two sections and skip the tip.

2 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. smoked paprika
2 tsp. Kosher salt
2 tsp. sugar
4 limes, squeezed for the juice
¾ – 1 cup olive oil

Mix marinade ingredients together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add wings. Stir well. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.

1 – 7 oz. can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, pureed
4 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
5 tbsp. honey
4 tbsp. butter, melted
Zest of 2 limes
½ – 1 tsp. salt

Mix sauce in a small pot. Simmer for a few minutes. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to use.

Cook wings over a medium-hot grill for 20-30 minutes. Brush with sauce the last 5-7 minutes.

Serve with one, or both, of these delicious dips.

Avocado Crema
1 avocado, pureed
1 cup plain Greek yogurt

Combine both ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well. Chill until ready to serve.

Blue Cheese Crema
¾ cup blue cheese crumbles
1 tsp. red onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. shallot, finely chopped
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well. Chill until ready to serve.

Now sit back and enjoy with a tall glass of fresh sangria!
