How to Make hot ancho wings
- Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly oil.
Mix the chile powder, cumin, coriander, cloves, 2 teaspoons salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add the wings and toss to coat.
Spread the wings, spaced apart, on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake, turning once, until browned and crisp, about 40 minutes.
- To Make Them Hot:
Ancho chile powder gives these a slightly smoky kick; serious wing lovers will want to step up the heat.
- To Make Them Hotter:
Put 2 jalapenos, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, the juice of 1 lime and 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a food processor and finely chop. Toss with the wings; marinate 2 hours. Brush off the marinade and rub and bake as directed, omitting the black pepper.
