A heap of golden brown roasted wings dipped in a rich Taza Guajillo sauce is an easy, crowd-pleasing nosh. It’s a great party snack, but also a delicious casual supper dish. We seasoned with Bondat Food’s delicious Chocolate Chipotle Rub, which is made with Taza, for an extra layer of spicy chocolaty goodness. Here at the Taza Test Kitchen we like to dip our wings, but you could also toss them in the sauce for a pub-style serving option.
Serves 2 as a main, 4 as an appetizer
2 1/2 pounds chicken wings
2 teaspoons Bondat Foods Chocolate Chipotle Rub (or substitute your favorite poultry rub)
1 package (2.7oz) Taza Guajillo Chili Chocolate Mexicano, chopped
1/4 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Adjust the oven rack to middle position and preheat to 425 degrees. Toss the chicken wings with the rub until evenly coated, then place on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Roast for 25 minutes, or until wings are puffed and golden.
2. Combine chopped chocolate, apple juice, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, and smoked paprika in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, until all the ingredients are evenly combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve alongside the roasted wings.
