The Late Great Cinqo de Mayo Wings

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I am way behind on my postings. Since I retired, I just don't have any spare time. You guys who work for a living don't know how difficult it is.

 

Anyway, here is what I made on Cinqo de Mayo.

 

I didn't have any taco seasoning so I made some:

 

  • 25 ml (2 tablespoons) chili powder
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) garlic powder
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) onion powder
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) crushed red chilies
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) dried oregano
  • 2 ml (1/2 teaspoon) paprika
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) cumin
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) ground coriander
  • 2 ml (1/2 teaspoon) salt
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) ground pepper

 

 

Note the fancy label and jar. Presentation is everything.

 

I had a dozen chicken drumettes that I put in a bowl. I tossed them with 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil and 10 ml (2 teaspoons) of taco seasoning.

 

 

I put them on the pellet smoker preheated to 325 F.

 

 

After 25 minutes, I gave them a flip.

 

 

While they were finishing off, I made a glaze by mixing the following in a small saucepan:

 

  • 50 ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) lime juice
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) chili sauce
  • 3 ml (1/2 teaspoon) taco seasoning
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) molasses
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) cornstarch

 

I heated that on medium heat, stirring, until the glaze was thickened and shiny.

 

 

After they cooked for 25 minutes on the second side, I took them off and put them in a large bowl.

 

 

I tossed them with the glaze.

 

 

 

The finished product.

 

 

 

We served them with baked potatoes and carrot sticks.

 

 

The Verdict

 

These were very tasty. I thought they were a touch salty but I am very sensitive to salt and She Who Must Be Obeyed said they were perfect. There was the brightness of the lime, the pungent cumin and a touch of sweet. Apparently, I can make these again.

You're too kind to a fat old Canadian, Case. Thanks for the point.

Tasty looking wings. I will try your seasoning mix. How hot are the wings? My people like them with just a hint of heat.

Reading your complaints about spare time I will probably never retire. I like my spare time. Can't risk it.

These aren't really spicy. There is a some spice from the chili powder but I buy a pretty tame version of chili powder. I would say they are about the same spice level as a Taco Time Burrito without the hot sauce.

 

Wise choice on the retiring. I think I have to go  back to work to get a rest.

Thanks, Richie. Sadly, a lot of what takes up my time is for me. Curling, golfing, smoking, etc.
