Mango Habanero Chicken Wing Recipe

A lot of people say that summer is the perfect grilling season- but I firmly disagree. For me- fall is the perfect time to break open the grill and create all kinds of delicious recipes. There’s something magical about the crisp weather, football season, or just heading outside to eat before winter sets in. 

Spicy chicken wings are a family favorite thanks to a funny story from when I was living in San Ramón, Costa Rica. None of my friends, including my now-husband Ricardo, had ever visited the States. They would constantly ask about the food here- and I was trying to explain spicy chicken wings.

This was before the widespread popularity of the Internet and food bloggers, so I had no idea how to make the wings I was so badly craving. One day, on the corner near my apartment, Anthony’s Pizza popped up with a sign that said “New York-style pizza and wings.”

I went in, and not only were Buffalo chicken wings on the menu, but they tasted JUST LIKE HOME. When I shared them with Ricardo (now my husband) he took one bite and never looked back.

These mango habanero wings are delicious- a perfect combination of sweet and spicy- not to mention easy. Mango is a staple in the Costa Rican diet, and I love love love the taste of the habanero chile in the sauce.

Plus, grilling the wings makes them crispy on the outside and tender on the inside- the perfect outdoor feast for fall.
