Tabasco Bacon Cheddar Wings


I have a pretty serious hot sauce addiction. Evidence shown here!  I think Thomas and I have started a little bit of a hoarding hot sauce program in our house. At any given time we have about 15 on hand. It's pretty awesome and things are never without spice at our table.

We're kicking things off today with one of my tried and true favorites. Tabasco Bacon Cheddar Buffalo Wings. Boom. That happened. There are the quintessential football food and any dude will go weak in the knees for these wings.
