My daughter requested wings one night so we decided to try new sauce recipes. This cilantro lime chili wing sauce was the big hit! The lime comes through as does a bit of heat from the chipotle chili powder. The cilantro does not really come through until the fresh cilantro is sprinkled on after cooked.
You can use the Memphis Barbecue Sauce with your wings too!
