  • Chicken Wings
  • 1 1/2 limes
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 Pounds chicken wings, rinsed and patted dry
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Avocado Dip
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 teaspoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  • Cooking Directions

    For marinade, finely grate the zest and squeeze the juice from the limes. In a blender, combine zest and juice with the remaining marinade ingredients; puree until smooth. Pour marinade over the chicken and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate overnight.

    Preheat broiler. Arrange chicken on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil at least 6 inches from heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until chicken is crispy on the outside and cooked through. Serve with avocado dip.

    For avocado dip, peel and pit one avocado; cut into chunks. Place avocado in a medium bowl; mash. Fold in 3 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves; 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice; 1 clove of garlic, minced; 1/4 teaspoon salt; and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
