Buffalo Wings

Last night was the last game of the world series.  My husband, Brian, was so excited to have a big party and have everyone over to watch it on our big screen.  He doesn't watch sports very often, so it was cute to see him get excited over this one.

Unfortunately I woke up throwing up that morning, and consequently the party was OFF.   On the upside, he got to eat the whole plate of buffalo wings by himself and didn't have to share with anyone.  :)  Brian loves his wings, and that was the only party food he'd even mentioned wanting.

My friend Dusty has a recipe blog, and is pretty famous for her wings, so I knew I needed to give them a try.  I can see why everyone wants her to bring them all the time--they were a smashing hit, and my husband said they were the best ones he's ever had.  Granted, he is so sweet to me and always compliments me on my food even when it is a complete disaster, but I do think he really liked these a lot. I will definitely be making them for him again.

Thanks for sharing Dusty!  You can link to her blog and find the rest of her great recipes here:

8-10 Chicken wings, or about 2 lbs. (you can also get the drummets, they are already separated)
1 bottle of Franks red taco sauce (they were out of this one so I got the small bottle of Franks Red Hot--the hotter the better, right?)
1 Tbls Cayenne pepper (or more)
1 cube butter or margarine

Fry chicken in vegetable oil until cooked through. This took me about 20 minutes on medium high heat.

While chicken is cooking: melt butter, add taco sauce, and Cayenne pepper.  Once chicken is cooked dip in sauce, place on foil lined baking sheet, bake on 350 for 10-15 min. Repeat for spicier chicken.


  1. These look awesome! My hubby would be so excited if I made these. I love the look of your blog, Wendy!

  2. Ha ha--for sure too spicy for me, which means just right for him. :)

  3. Yay! I'm glad Brian loved them. I'll be honest..I have never tried them, to spicy and eating chicken off of the bone is definitely not my thing...;)

  4. I just saw your question??...I usually find the drummets only at Wal-Mart. I think they are Tyson, in the fresh meats/chicken area. I will usually get two to four packages depending on the crowd size.
