    Very tasty and easy! Between the dark chili powder and 2 tsp. chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, the flavor was a bit intense for me, so I needed a piece of celery after each wing piece (and wished I had had some bleu cheese dip, too). It's very cold outside right now, so I elected to bake in the oven (on parchment paper-covered full sheet) for 30 min @ 425F, flip, then 15 min more. (The 2 pounds of wings fit my 2-qt. Corning casserole dish perfectly for marination, and fit my full sheet pan perfectly for baking.) I'm ready for the football playoffs! Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
