Buffalo wings have quickly become one of the most popular foods in the United States. They are called Buffalo wings because they originated in Buffalo, New York. The wings are first coated with a flour mixture, deep fried and then tossed with a hot sauce. The heat comes from hot sauce and cayenne pepper. You can easily adjust the amount of heat by using mild, medium or hot sauce. If you want to save time you can buy precut wings from the store. These were so good and I found them to be restaurant quality. I think they must have got devoured in a matter of minutes. I would highly recommend these wings as an appetizer for a party or even as part of a meal. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing. Enjoy.
