Melinda’s Fiery Wings

Melinda's Fiery Wings

Created by Chef Uno to satisfy the true chilehead, these wings are fiery hot, messy and sticky, but do not fear, you have a creamy dipping sauce to cool things off a bit. The dipping sauce can be made spicy or mild depending on how much heat you can handle.
