How to Make Tex Mex Wings with Pico de Gallo


  • 1Mix the beer, cider vinegar, chili powder, brown sugar, molasses, ketchup or chili sauce, Dijon mustard, vegetable oil and garlic in a bowl. Put chicken in a zippered plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Seal and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least several hours or preferably overnight.
  • 2Shortly before grilling the chicken, prepare the pico de gallo.Gently mix the black beans, diced tomatoes, diced onion, minced garlic, minced cilantro, cider vinegar, oil and salt in a bowl. Refrigerate til ready to serve.
  • 3Empty the marinade into a pan. Bring it to a vigorous boil over high heat and continue boiling til reduced by about half; keep warm.
    Heat grill to medium. Grill chicken wings for 4 to 5 minutes, turning to cook all surfaces, then grill and brush with marinade over the next 5 minutes. Let cook for another couple of minutes without glazing so the sauce crisps up a bit. The chicken should be cooked through.
  • 4Serve warm with Pico de Gallo. Makes 6 servings.
