How many Butterfly Likes do you give this?

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.

Just 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 for these Spicey Southwestern Grilled Wings. 

Delicious and tasty crowd-pleasing wings at home are particularly easy to do when you’re fixing them on the grill. And, for fantastic flavor, it doesn’t get any tastier than when you top these grilled wings with cool and creamy avocado jalapeno dressing.

Get ready for a PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH!

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. This seemed like the perfect recipe for giving this combination a try.

Be sure to get this dressing mixed up and ready ahead of time, so that it gets nice and cold before you serve it. The simple ingredients mix up quick and easy. And, I have to admit that the outcome was even better than I’d initially expected. Who would’ve known?

You’ll find that in this recipe for Avocado Jalapeno Dressing, the creamy avocado blends easily with the mayo and yogurt. The flesh of the pepper adds just a bit of zippiness, and the balance of spice and flavors combine perfectly with the southwestern seasoning for the grilled wings.

A few other ideas for
Avocado Jalapeno dressing...

Once we tried this Avocado Jalapeno Dressing we got excited about all the other ways we could use it.

What can I say, this Avocado Jalapeno Dressing is five-star all the way!

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds Chicken Wings* wing tips removed
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons gluten-free Southwest Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Green Salsa Verde
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper

For the Dressing

  • 1 large ripe Avocado removed from skin and pitted
  • 1 medium Jalapeno raw, stem and seeds removed
  • 1/2 Cup gluten-free Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Greek-Style Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup 2% Milk**
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon gluten-free Southwest Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • Dash Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

For the Wings

  • In a large resealable zipper bag combine oil, vinegar, seasoning, salsa Verde, salt, and pepper. Close bag and toss lightly to combine the ingredients.
  • Add chicken to marinade, seal bag and turn to coat the wings.
  • Refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to two hours before grilling. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.
  • Grill over medium-high heat 20 to 30 minutes, turning every 5 minutes to brown and crisp the skin. The internal temperature of the wings should reach 165ºF when done.

For the Dressing

  • Add avocado, jalapeno, mayonnaise, yogurt, and milk in a small blender or blender jar. Pulse until blended and smooth.
  • Pour mixture into a small bowl, whisk in lime juice, seasoning and spice. Refrigerate until needed.

Notes

*According to the USDA, the average uncooked whole chicken wing weighs 102 grams (or 3.5 ounces). For an average person’s appetite for actual chicken meat per serving (six-ounce serving), you’ll need approximately five to six whole chicken wings.
**For a thinner dressing add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

(Nutritional values are an approximation. Actual nutritional values may vary due to preparation techniques, variations related to suppliers, regional and seasonal differences, or rounding.)
