Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken wings
Ancho Chili Tomato Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cups tomato- based chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fancy molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Chili Spice Mix:
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

Method

Chili Spice Mix: Mix together chili powder, paprika, brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Straighten each chicken wing; push skewer through length from base to tip. Rub all over with spice mix. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes or refrigerate for up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

Ancho Chili Tomato Sauce: Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.

Stir in ketchup, molasses, vinegar, ancho chili powder, mustard and hot pepper sauce; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until bubbly, about 5 minutes. Let cool.

Place wings on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, for 10 minutes. Baste with sauce; grill, basting and turning occasionally, until crisp and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 15 to 25 minutes.
