  • I like this using the 1/3 cup wing sauce. I am sometimes a whimp about hot stuff and this was not too hot for me. But if you’re worried then start with a 1/4 cup and add more at the end of cooking if you want it to have a little bit more kick.
  • Any of your favorite salsa will work I like to use Trader Joes pineapple salsa.
