This recipe takes hot wings to the next level!

Taking hot wings to the next level.

Our friends over at Ark-La-Tex Weekend decided to take game-day snacks to the next level. SO, they thought “why not combine all of our favorites into one recipe!?”

The challenge began with one simple question: What is your favorite snack while you watch football? And, the rest was history…

Matthew Banks – Nacho Cheese Doritos

Dominique O’Neill – Tostitos Tortilla Chips

Javonti Thomas – BBQ Wings

Jeffrey Dillard – Hot Wings

Robert Streeter – Popcorn

Buffalo Wings are a staple of many Super Bowl parties. So, in the style of those over-the-top, super-dramatic-borderlining-on-extreme-epicness, overproduced videos you see in the pre-game shows, we present

SUPER CRUNCH SNACK WINGS 

Roster of ingredients

2 pounds of chicken wings (no wingtips)

2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/4 c. your favorite BBQ sauce

1/4 c. your favorite hot sauce

1 tsp. Siracha

3 tsp. honey

4 Tbsp. butter

Small bowl of popcorn

Small bowl of chips (we used 1 bowl of Doritos and 1 bowl of tortilla chips)

Ranch or blue cheese dressing

Game plan (Directions)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix garlic powder, pepper, and salt into big bowl. Add olive oil and stir. Toss in the chicken wings until evenly coated. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Put a wire rack on top of foil. Place chicken wings on wire rack. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the wings and bake for another 30 minutes. While they wings are cooking, bring together the BBQ sauce, hot sauce, siracha, honey, and butter into a medium-sized pot. Bring to a simmer. Take a blunt object (we used the bottom of a sturdy glass) and smash the popcorn and chips into small pieces.

Once the wings are cooked, place them into a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss until coated. Then roll the wings into whichever coatings you want. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
