Jalapeño Wings

Jalapeño Wings

Do you know that amazing feeling when you keep trying something, but just can't get it right, then all of a sudden, you got it? Well, that was the exact reaction these jalapeño wings elicited in me when I made them over the summer. Jalapeño wings have been a recipe I've been trying to lock down for many, many years, but could never get it quite right. My folly ended up being focusing on using only a jalapeño hot sauce when I really needed to broaden my horizons—it took jalapeños in three different forms to make these wings as stellar as they could be!

Souvlaki Wings

Souvlaki Wings

For our next installment of Wing Month we'll see how I learned to stop worrying and love the marinade. See, I'm fan of crispy wings, and once I picked up the baking powder trick from Kenji at Serious Eats for getting extra-crunchy skinned wings on the grill, I've used that method and haven't looked back. The only problem with doing that is that it has limited my flavoring options to dry components before cooking and then the introduction of wet components only in the finishing glaze, leaving me unable to use marinades as an alternative. Out of the five recipes that will comprise this Wing Month though, three use a marinade, representing a change of pace for me, but the results spoke for themselves, like in these souvlaki-flavor wings.

Loaded Salchipapas

Salchipapas

I'm not much for New Year's resolutions that involve any restrictions on food. I think you should end the year eating what makes you happy, start the year eating what makes you happy, and just continue that trend until you arrive back at the next New Year's. For me, one surefire way to either end or begin the year on a high note would be to whip up a batch of these loaded salchipapas. I often order salchipapas when I see it on the menu, and while I'm used to the normal incarnation of this snack/side dish of french fries and hot dogs, while I was in Colombia, I experienced a version that was taken to the next level with an array of additional toppings including bacon, cheese, and multiple salsas. This over-the-top incarnation of salchipapas felt like a very Meatwave-like way closeout another year of great recipes.
