Dave's Taco Bell'd Wing Sauce

It doesn't matter what you might think about the food at Taco Bell, their Fire "Border Sauce" is pretty respectable medium-level hot sauce. It's full-bodied and flavorful, with a good but not overpowering kick.

Chances are, if you go to Taco Bell now and then, you've got a few packets of this stuff kicking around. Did you know it's a valued ingredient in an excellent Buffalo-style wing sauce?

Dave's Taco Bell'd Wing Sauce

4 tablespoons butter
12 packets of Taco Bell Fire Sauce
1 bottle (6 ounces) Louisiana Hot Sauce
4 tablespoons brown sugar

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat until foamy; add Fire Sauce and Louisiana Hot Sauce. Stir in brown sugar and simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens a bit and coats a spoon dipped into the pan.

Tip cooked wings into the pan, stir and toss to coat them well, and serve.

Makes enough to coat a little more than 2 dozen wings.
