Super Bowl Special: Best Ever Hot and Spicy Baked Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Super Bowl Special Best Ever Hot & Spicy Baked Chicken Wings and Blue Cheese Yogurt Dipping Sauce
No Super Bowl Party should be without Hot and Spicy Wings.
This is one of my go-to wet rubs for chicken wings!
The parents in the house used to get these all to themselves, until Bea developed a taste for everything hot and spicy. It won’t be long before Toby joins in and we’re all grasping for the last wing on the plate.
BLITZ!

Best Ever Hot and Spicy Baked Chicken Wings
Best Ever Hot and Spicy Baked Chicken Wings

makes about 24 wings [or one whole chicken]

Wet Rub Ingredients:
[This is flexible. If you’re missing something on the list, just double something else.]
1 tbs each:
Mexican Chile Powder [or just Plain Chile Powder]
Ancho Chile Powder
Chocolate Chile Powder
Sweet Smoked Paprika
Hot Smoked Paprika
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder

1 tsp each:
Cinnamon
Turmeric

up to 1 tsp each:
Oregano [optional]
Cayenne Pepper [optional]
Salt [optional]

up to .5 tsp:
ground cloves

1-2 tbs:
Sriracha or other hot sauce

1-2 tbs each:
Orange juice or Apple Cider
Vinegar [optional]

About 2 dozen wings.

Method
Heat oven to 425
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl or zip-lock-style bag.
Add hot sauce and juice/vinegar and mix well.
Immerse wings in bowl or bag and coat well with the wet rub.
Bake for about 25 minutes, until quite dark, and the wings reach an internal temperature of 165F.
[These wings will appear rather dark on the outside. No worries, it’s nothing burnt, only amazing hot and spicy flavour!]
Serve with more hot sauce [if you dare], carrot sticks, and our Blue Cheese Yogurt Dipping Sauce [below].
You can also use this rub on a whole chicken, baking at 425 for at least 45 minutes, or until the breast reaches 155 and the leg and thigh 180.
