Recipe by Ysman
I personally like my Hot Wings deep fried and extra crispy. I came up with this recipe after getting tired of the same ol' messy wings with goopy skin. Substitute with your favorite wing sauce, but I always preferred the tangy taste and slight kick of Crystal Hot Sauce. I usually mix Crystal Hot Sauce with a bit of Crystal Extra Hot or Tabasco.

These were great! I used extra hot sauce and let them marinate overnight. I also cut back on the red pepper by 1/2 TBSP, as my son was going to be eating some. Next time, I'll use the full strength for maximum heat, and only 1 & 1/2 cups flour. Thanks for the posting!
