It's been so hot here the last few days that we've just been munching our way thru each day. These were very good for that. I used Frank's Hot Sauce which is fairly spicy. I actually made them twice this weekend. First time, I followed the recipe and used 2 tablespoons hot sauce. Second time, I used more hot sauce (maybe another 3-4 tablespoons), as we like ours really spicy. The Frank's bottle had a recipe that said use 1/2 cup! I wasn't that brave. The sauce was very good and easy. Thanks Bev for a good and tasty recipe. We enjoyed the wings alot.
