Family Favorite Hot Wings

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Daydasa

This is the recipe I always go back to time and time again. I always make a huge batch up for gatherings and keep them in the crockpot on warm. If you like your wings with less of a bite, cut back the cayenne to 1/2 to 1 tsp. The trick with these is to make sure they are nice and crispy. Enjoy!
