Notes

*Note: If you don’t have a deep fryer, as an alternative, fill a deep pot about 1/3 full with oil and place over medium heat until a frying thermometer reads 350 degrees.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chipotle pepper sauce, preferably Tabasco brand
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 clove garlic, grated
  • Vegetable or canola oil, for frying
  • 24 chicken wings, split, trimmed of excess fat and skin, wing tips removed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (preferably Wondra) or rice flour

Directions

Combine the avocado, cilantro, chipotle sauce, lime juice, cumin, salt, water, and garlic in a food processor and process until smooth.

Preheat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees.*

Toss the chicken wings in a bowl with the flour. Fry the wings for 10 minutes or until golden and crispy. Remove from the fryer, drain, and transfer to a bowl. Toss wings with desired amount of sauce.

Avocado Shopping Tip

Avoid very soft avocados; choose those that yield slightly to finger pressure.

Avocado Cooking Tip

Avocados oxidize quickly; use lemon juice to keep the flesh from turning brown.
