Green Jalapeno Hot Wings

Chicken wings are a perfect party food and with Super bowl just around the corner, you need to go ahead and put these delicious wings on your list. These roasted buffalo-style chicken wings are covered in a spicy green jalapeno sauce, which is pureed with pickled jalapenos for an extra kick of heat.

Green Jalapeno Hot Wings
4-6 servings
Recipe from Food and Wine

5lb. chicken wings and drumettes
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup green jalapeno hot sauce
2 tablespoon coarsley chopped pickled jalapenos
1 stick unsalted butter
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
celery sticks for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F and position 2 racks in the middle and upper third. Spread the wings out on 2 baking sheets in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes, turning once, until wings are golden and crisp.
2. Meanwhile, in a mini-food processor, puree the hot sauce and pickled jalapenos until smooth. In a small saucepan, cook the butter with the garlic over moderate heat just until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the puree to the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Transfer the sauce to a large bowl. Rinse out processor.
3. Add the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar and blue cheese to the processor and pulse until fairly smooth. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a small bowl.
4. Using tongs, transfer the chicken wings to the bowl with the hot sauce and toss to coat. Pour the wings and any extra sauce onto a large platter and serve right away, passing the blue cheese dip and celery sticks at the table.
