Whether you’re making these Spicy Southwestern Grilled Wings with Avocado Jalapeno Dressing as an appetizer or for your dinner’s main course, you’ll be amazed by the super flavor these Southwestern-style wings and this slightly spicy Avocado Jalapeno Dressing brings to the table.

One of our family’s go-to ways to fix wings, especially when we know we’ll be short on time later in the day, is to prepare and marinate the wings beforehand.

Just a few hours in the refrigerator will deepen and enhance the flavor when ready to grill. Actual grilling time only takes a short 30 minutes for these Spicy Southwestern Grilled Wings. 

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!

Make these Wings Over the Top with Yummy Avocado Jalapeno Dressing AND...

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. 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 is 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 beforehand so that it gets nice and cold before you serve it. The simple ingredients mix up quickly and easily. 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 pepper’s flesh adds just a bit of zippiness, and the balance of spice and flavors combines perfectly with the grilled wings’ southwestern seasoning.

Spicy Southwestern Grilled Wings with Avocado Jalapeno Dressing
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.

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.

Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Taco Salads
  • Burrito Bowls
  • Slather on a Sandwich or in a Wrap

WOW! I’m getting hungry just thinking about all of the possibilities.

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

YOUR OWN NOTES

KITCHEN 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. Looking to buy enough for a party? You might find this How Many Chicken Wings to Buy Calculator handy.
**For a thinner dressing add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
