If you’re like me, sometimes you get a hankering for eating something a little spicy, zesty, and smokey tasting all at the same time. Pair those qualities with grilled chicken wings and cool and creamy dressing, and you’ll hear me chanting winner, winner chicken dinner!
From sports bars to tailgate parties, entertaining friends to serving movie-night snacks, there’s no arguing that wings are an all-time favorite finger-licking, lip-smacking food to be prepared and enjoyed in countless ways. One of our family’s go-to ways to fix wings especially when we know we’re going to be short on time later in the day is to prepare and marinade the wings ahead of time. A few hours in the refrigerator will deepen and enhance the flavor when you’re ready to grill. Actual grilling time only takes a short 30 minutes.
We’re huge fans of avocados and jalapenos at our house, so incorporating them into our meals whenever possible seems natural for me. And, because my dear hubby is a sauce fanatic, I’d never dream of putting wings on the table without serving a sauce or dressing to go with them. Hence, my ongoing challenge to get creative with saucy ideas. I thought I’d give this combination a try. Again, I get this dressing ready ahead of time and refrigerate it until serving. Easy, tasty and oh so good, I must admit that the outcome was even better than I’d initially expected. The creamy avocado blends well with the mayo and yogurt. The flesh of the pepper adds just a bit of zip, and the balance of spice and flavors combine perfectly with the southwestern seasoning for grilled wings. The dressing would be great on taco salads, burrito bowls, used in a wrap; wow, I’m getting excited about all of the possibilities. In our opinion, it’s five-star all the way!
Whether you’re making these wings as an appetizer, or for your dinners main course, you’ll be amazed by the super flavor these Southwestern-style wings, and this dressing brings to the table.
