It is officially football season! There is no better football snack than Hot Wings. I have been on a little hot wing kick lately. I have been eating them at least once a week. Although your average hot wings are delicious, they are not the healthiest thing around. So, I decided to put away the deep fryer and heat up the grill. Grilled wings are just as tasty and if you grill them over high heat, the skin will get nice and crispy. By grilling the wings you get all of the flavor and texture, without all of the fat.
The wingtacular is coming up in a couple of weeks and I wanted to give a little help to the competitors. The basis of any good wing sauce is a good hot sauce. Over the counter hot sauces are good, but if you make your own you can control the ingredients and the amount of heat. As always, nothing compares to homemade.
I went to the local grocery store last night looking for a nice mix of peppers to create my hot sauce. The main problem was that they were extremely limited in their selection. So for this hot sauce I am making a green hot sauce. It still has the spiciness that I look for in a hot sauce but it has a different color and more of an earthiness to it.
