Hot Tamale Hot Wings

Tired of hot wings drenched in sugary sauces? This recipe calls for a dry-rub. These hot wings have a seasoned blend of dry ground chili peppers, mesquite bean flour, and spices that can be adjusted to your taste and tolerances.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 40 minutes



1.5 lbs chicken wings (about 16 flats and drummies)

1 - 2 tbsp EVOO

2 tbsp Mesquite bean flour*

2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp paprika

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp  ground cayenne pepper (adjust to your tolerances)

1 tsp crushed red pepper (again, adjust)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp Himalayan pink sea salt

1 tsp black pepper



Preheat oven to 350º (F).

Dry wing pieces with paper towel and place in a large bowl.  Rub with EVOO until each piece is evenly coated.

Combine all dry ingredients in another large bowl or a plastic zip-lock freezer bag and coat each piece (3 or 4 at a time). Repeat until all wings are coated with the dry rub mixture.

Place seasoned wings on a rack over a shallow baking pan with sides.

Bake at 350º for 20 minutes, flip each wing and then bake for another 20 minutes.

Remove from rack and serve.
