This is my mom's 4th of July specialty... requested every year. These are easy to make, and provide a unique twist to traditional hot wings

Excellent twist on the same old buffalo wings--I hope more people try these soon! Great flavor. Instead of Good Seasons mix I subbed homemade mix recipe # 34573. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
