Recipe Notes

*Regular hot sauce will NOT work in this recipe as hot WINGS sauce is much spicer and creamier. If you are not sure how spicy want it, start with 3 tablespoons hot wings sauce and add more at the end of cooking time. SEE BELOW for a list of more recipes using Frank’s Hot WINGS sauce.
**If you are using the total 1/3 cup hot sauce, you might want to add more brown sugar to taste at the end of cooking to balance out the heat.
