Taco Spiced Chicken Wings

“It’s the company, not the cooking, that makes a meal.” – Kelly Barton

I love making appetizers! There are so many great recipes out there and there’s something for everyone. Plus, I really enjoy being around friends and family while snacking on some delicious finger foods! Appetizers are great for parties, small dinner gatherings, and of course for snacking during sports games on the weekend!

The key to making these delicious wings is keeping it as all natural as possible when it comes to the taco seasoning. Making your own seasoning mix is probably the best option, but personally I don’t always have the time to do that. To speed up the process I usually pick up a packet of taco-seasoning mix to have on hand for recipes like this one. Try to avoid seasoning packets with unnecessary ingredients such as enriched flour, modified cornstarch, maltodextrin and caramel color…etc.  I always use Trader Joe’s taco-seasoning mix: one of the best I’ve discovered so far with half the sodium of the average store-brand seasoning packet. It’s all spices & it tastes delicious!
