Ingredients
  • Wings:
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 5 tablespoons onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 4 bunches fresh cilantro, minced
  • Sea salt
  • 5 pounds chicken wings, separated into flats and drums
  • Oil, for oiling the grill grates
  • Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • 1 pound blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

  • Chipotle Tequila Sauce:
  • 5 chipotle peppers in adobo, with their juice

Directions
  • For the wings: In the jar of a blender, combine the lemon juice, tequila, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cilantro and 4 tablespoons salt. Blend together. Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and pour the marinade over, turning to coat well. Let sit in the fridge for 25 minutes or up to overnight.

  • For the blue cheese dressing: Mix together the blue cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, tequila, sugar, dill, garlic powder, onion powder and 2 tablespoons salt. Cover and refrigerate.

  • For the chipotle tequila sauce: In a blender, blend the chipotles (with their juice) and agave until smooth.

  • Prepare a grill for medium heat; lightly oil the grates. Grill the wings, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes. Brush all over with the chipotle glaze and cook 5 minutes more. Serve with additional chipotle sauce on the side.
