  • 4½ tsp Ancho chile pepper
  • 1½ tsp cumin
  • 1½ tsp roasted coriander
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • ¾ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2½ lb chicken wings
  • 1 Tb extra virgin olive oil
  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine the Ancho chile pepper, cumin, roasted coriander, fine sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, cinnamon, onion powder and garlic powder. Give them a stir to combine and set aside for a moment.
  3. Pat the wings dry using paper towels.
  4. Place the wings in a large mixing bowl and drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil. Toss the wings to coat them with the oil.
  5. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the wings, and then toss them to completely coat them with it.
  6. Arrange the wings on a baking sheet that is fitted with a baking rack. This will allow both sides of the wings to crisp up without having to turn them while they bake. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through and browned.Enjoy!
