Hot Wings are my absolute favorite appetizer! This is the way they prepared them at Ruby Tuesdays when I worked there and they are fantastic! They really are very simple to make and you can adjust the heat according to your taste.

This is the most authentic recipe for hot wings--the secret is using Frank's hot sauce. If you like going to the chain of buffalo wing restaurants (more like hole-in-the wall greasy spoons), you'll love this recipe. I'm a huge fan!
