    Chocolate Covered Mimz's Note:

    My best friend and I are culinary students and came up with this recipe while we were in culinary school. It really goes with everything... Chicken... French Fries... Honesty, I would put this s**t on everything... : ) I was to point out that most of these ingredients can be added to taste. The sauce is AMAZING and now the only wing sauce I use.

    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      in a sauce pan saute garlic, cilantro, and half cup of butter until soft, then add bottle of hot sauce.(i use a hot sauce that also doubles as a buffalo wing sauce because i like the extra vinegar, my fave is Franks) - juice three limes using at least a tablespoon of lime zest, and the juice with pulp. add brown sugar, honey, salt and pepper(s) - (s&p to taste).
    2. 2
      simmer on stove until you get a deep red color, then pour over chicken wings or dip chicken fingers. THIS IS DELICIOUS ! The real secret of this recipe is getting that clear-red result after the simmer.
    3. 3
      *butter correction made*.

      OH YUM!!!!! This was so good. I think that I will be looking for excuses to make this sauce again! I used this as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken breast tenders. It was really easy to make, I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out wonderful. Not to spicy, but just enough heat, slightly sweet, a burst of lime flavor......just wonderful. Thank you so much for this recipe, it a keeper!

      ZOWIE!!! This recipe is spot on FANTASTIC. Just the right amount of "heat" for us on-the-milder-side chicken wing eaters. I, too, love the more vinegar than hot and I will never make these any other way from now on. Followed the recipe precisely. YUMMY!! 5 stars!!

      We were disappointed with the results of this recipe. First of all, the amount of butter to be included is not clear, as the ingredients list calls for one amount (eight tablespoons) and the directions specify another (four tablespoons). I used the lesser amount. In addition, despite the amount of lime juice, lime zest, and sweeteners included, the final product had notes of neither. We found it to taste the same as straight hot sauce with a bit of butter added, which is your basic boring "Buffalo wing" sauce. Perhaps the greater amount of butter would have been better.
