This is a very quick appetizer recipe and a good way to use up the crumbs from your tortilla chips. Flavored chips work well with this recipe. Also try using the spicier taco seasoning mix if you want a hotter chicken. Recipe can he multiplied as many times as needed. Serve with hot pepper sauce, if desired.

This is a combination you don't see too often.It was delicious! The big problem is adhering the seasoning and chips to the wings.First coat the wings with garlic flavored olive oil and use a rolling pin to crush the chips into crumbs.For serving I made a sauce of Caesar dressing/cumin/taco seasoning for dipping the cooked wings.If you intend to make the sauce dip the uncooked wings in it before applying the taco seasoning and crushed chips.It holds the seasoning and the chips and adds a wonderful flavor to the wings.

pretty good. The kids (age 4 & 6) even ate it up. I used chicken breast cut in chunks like chicken nuggets. I put the chips and taco seasoning in a ziploc bag then dipped chicken in milk and put it in the bag and tossed it around. The chips did stick pretty well this way. The chicken was crunchy and good. Great flavor. I will make again. Read More

this recipe was very easy and delicious. I used drumsticks and thighs instead of wings for a dinner idea. it was like a spicy oven fried chicken. I coated the chicken with olive oil before i coated it with the chips which worked well. I also sprinkled the coated chicken with a little bit of hot sauce and taco cheese for a little extra kick.

These were a unique spin on wings. The chips didn't stick very well so I sprinkled them over top before baking them and they ended up staying on the chicken then. Read More

This is a great change from the usual buffalo wings. They go great with a little hot sauce sprinkled on top and a cold beer Read More

I followed the recipe and made a few changes of my own. I used cheese flavored Dorrito's with Lawrey's Hot Taco spice for the coating. I combined hotwings sauce with milk fresh garlic sea salt & black pepper to coat the chicken. Greesed the cooking pan lightly with butter. I melted chedar cheese on the chicken added more hotwing sauce. I served the chicken on: lettuce tomatos avocado red onion with blue cheese dressing. Great easy recipe! Read More
