Habanero Hot Wings

Smokey Habanero Chicken Wings with Ceylon Cinnamon

Is there any food more versatile than chicken wings? Think about it—the rubs and sauces are endless; they can be an appetizer, entree, or even a side dish; and they far surpass any seasonality restrictions that are pinned on so many other dishes. We love creating new wing recipes using a mix of common and unexpected ingredients. 

When people hear, habanero, they typically think of dishes that will ensure a good amount of sweat on the brow. For these wings, though, we wanted a little bit of spiciness, but not so much so that it will fry your taste buds, so we blended habanero chile powder with a smokey sea salt, garlic powder, and a touch of Ceylon cinnamon, which creates a blend that perfectly intercepts the worlds of spicy, smokey, sweet, and salty.

How To Make A Perfectly Crispy Habanero Hot Wing



  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Mix together your dry ingredients: habanero chile powder, smoked sea salt, Ceylon cinnamon, garlic powder, onion powder, and white rice powder. 
  3. Toss your chicken wings in olive oil. 
  4. Toss your chicken wings in the dry ingredient blend. 
  5. Oil a baking sheet and line your wings so none are touching. 
  6. Bake in an oven for 20 minutes. 
  7. Using tons, flip the wings and put back into the oven for 20 more minutes. 
  8. Check your wings to ensure they are perfectly golden brown and slightly crispy. 


We recommend serving these wings with a cilantro ranch dip or a creamy gorgonzola dip. Both can be made by mixing together equal parts sour cream and mayo, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a dash of red wine vinegar and then stirring in your chosen addition (cilantro or gorgonzola).
