Sweet & Spicy Wings

Thanks so much to Leslie for having me on her fabulous blog!

I’m not much of a football fan, or any kind of sports fan for that matter, but I love a good Super Bowl party. Cozying up with a bunch of friends on a February Sunday to watch hysterical commercials over snacks and beer is right up my alley. Which is why, instead of just your regular bag of chips and a jar of salsa, I like to step it up a bit. It’s a long game, so you need food that’s filling but still party-friendly. These Sweet and Spicy Hot Wings are finger food that can double as a meal. And since they’re baked instead of breaded and fried, they’re better for you, too. I make this recipe with a sour-cream-and-tomato dip, but it works just as well with ranch or blue cheese dip if you prefer.

Also, this recipe uses Ro*Tel Original Tomatoes and Chilies, but if you can handle the heat, go ahead and kick it up a notch with the Hot version. Canned tomatoes are super convenient, and if you’re looking for even more easy Super Bowl snacks, check out these football party menu ideas, which inspired the spinach queso dip I made for the playoffs party:

And without further ado…here’s the recipe! Enjoy!

Sweet and Spicy Hot Wings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4 servings (4 drumettes with 2 tablespoons dip each)

PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, un-drained
1/4 cup sour cream (use light or low-fat if you prefer)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
16 chicken wing drumettes (about 2 pounds)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1. Preheat broiler. Spray broiler pan with cooking spray; set aside.
2. Place tomatoes in food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
3. Drain half of chopped tomatoes and combine with sour cream to make dip; set aside.
4. Place remaining un-drained tomatoes in small bowl; combine with butter and honey.
5. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper in large bowl. Add half of tomato mixture to wings; toss to coat. Transfer to broiler pan; broil 10 minutes.
6. Turn wings; spoon remaining tomato mixture on wings. Broil 10 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink and tender (180°F). Serve with dip.
