Ghost Pepper Wings Recipe

Ghost Pepper Wings Recipe

Make and eat at your own risk! It may be snowing outside, but you’ll feel nice and warm on the inside after eating these delicious wings!

Ingredients:
2 ghost peppers (any variety, use more/less to taste)
6 dried guajillo peppers
1 C apple cider vinegar
¼ C water
¼ C honey
¼ yellow onion
5 garlic cloves
¼ tsp cumin
2 tsp salt
½ lime (fresh squeezed)

2 pounds chicken wings (or go Vegan with Seitan strips)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt

Directions:
(Make sure you wear gloves!)

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pat dry chicken wings or Seitan strips. Mix together dry ingredients, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Toss the wings or strips in the dry ingredients, fully coating the wings or strips.
  • Lay out wings or Seitan strips on baking rack on large rimmed baking sheet, so air can get underneath the wings making them crispy all around. Bake for 30 minutes, then flip wings over and cook for 15-20 more minutes or until golden brown.
  • In medium sauce pan bring de-seeded peppers, garlic, yellow onion, apple cider vinegar, and water to simmer. Cover and let simmer on low heat for 1 hour. (do not let boil, the apple cider vinegar will turn bitter if too hot)
  • Remove half the liquid and set aside. Blend the rest in food processor until smooth. Run through mesh sieve to take out any large chunks left over.
  • Once blended, return to sauce pan and add your spices and honey. Mix till honey is dissolved, turn on heat if needed, but you don’t want to cook the peppers anymore only melt the honey.
  • Last squeeze in lime juice and salt to taste.
  • Toss the wings with the sauce and enjoy!
