Mango Habanero IPA Chicken Wings


Our brewer Chris Lowe, one of the minds behind our Brewhouse Rarities Mango Habanero IPA, is a beast in the brewhouse and in the kitchen. Playing up the balance of sweet and heat in the beer, he developed a recipe for Mango Habanero hot wings that are sure to make you sweat.


  • 5 lbs cleaned and cut wings
  • 12 oz Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 2 habanero peppers (whole)*
  • 2 ripe mangos (peeled and diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar 
  • 1 small white onion (finely diced)
  • 1/2 cup Mango Habanero IPA
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper


  1. Season the wings with salt and red pepper and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Cover baking sheet with foil and place wire rack on sheet. Place the wings on the rack and bake for 50 minutes, turning then halfway through. 
  4. Combine diced mango, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, habaneros, and beer.
  5. Heat butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. 
  6. Once butter melts and is combined with brown sugar, add onions and garlic and cook until soft. 
  7. Add both mango and onion mixtures to a blender and blend until smooth.
  8. Once sauce is throughly mixed, transfer it back into the saucepan and bring to a summer. 
  9. Remove wings from the oven, toss them in sauce, and enjoy.

* Two habaneros mean business. If you want your wings with a little less heat, use 1 habanero pepper. For mild spice, only use half.
