Baked Mexican Chicken Wings


2 lbs. chicken wings

2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. chipotle powder or paprika

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. cumin

2 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. red pepper flakes, optional*

Combine wings with the spices. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil then place a wire baking rack on the baking sheet. Place wings on the wire rack. Bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 30 - 35 minutes. Do not turn the wings. Wings are done when the bone easily pulls out of the meat.

Toss in the Mexican Wing Sauce and broil for an additional 2 minutes.

Or if uncoated wings are preferred, broil 2 minutes and serve sauce separately for dipping only.

Mexican Wing Sauce

1/4 cup butter

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. chili power

1 cup salsa

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tbsp. water

1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/8 tsp. salt

1 tsp. hot sauce, Marie Sharps, optional*

Cilantro, chopped

In a small saucepan fry garlic powder and chili power in the butter for a few seconds. Add in the rest. Simmer for 10 minutes. Blend until smooth. Ready to serve as dipping sauce or toss chicken wings.


Red pepper flakes and hot sauce are optional. Add according to your heat preference.

Wings are delicious paired with any buffalo wing sauce or a creamy sauce.
