Tested till perfect Mexican Hot Wings with Green Salsa

Mexican Hot Wings with Green Salsa

The rich, smoky taste of chipotle peppers joins the fresh lively taste of salsa. The salsa's tomatillos, sometimes called Spanish or Mexican green tomatoes, have a delicate, lightly acidic flavour. Canned ones are available in most supermarkets. This salsa is also good with tortilla chips.
Mild version: Reduce chipotle peppers to 1. Reduce adobo sauce to 1 tbsp (15 mL). Add 2 tbsp (25 mL) ketchup. Replace jalapeño pepper in Green Salsa with dash of green or other mild hot pepper sauce.

In large bowl, mash together chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, lime juice, oil, oregano, cinnamon, salt and garlic until smooth. Add chicken wings; toss to coat well. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or for up to 24 hours.

Arrange wings on rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 20 minutes; turn and bake until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 15 minutes.

Broil wings, turning once, until crisp and browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve with Green Salsa.
