For the Chipotle Chicken Wing Dry Rub

  • 1 TBSP Crushed Chipotle Pepper
  • 1 TBSP Granulated Garlic Powder
  • 1 TBSP Granulated Onion Powder
  • 1 TBSP Smoked Hungarian Paprika
  • 1 TBSP Ground Cumin
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1 TSP Mustard Powder
  • 1 TSP Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 TSP Pepper
  • 1/2 TSP Cayenne Pepper

For the Chicken Wings

  • 16 Chicken Wings Drums & Flats separated. Wing tips discarded.
  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil


For the Chipotle Chicken Wing Rub

  • Add all the dry seasonings to a bowl. Mix well until fully incorporated.

For the Chipotle Chicken Wings

  • Add the chicken wings to a large bowl. Coat with the olive oil. You may use less than 3 TBSP if you have smaller wings.
  • Liberally coat the wings with the Chipotle spices.
  • Add to a hot grill. Cook the wings for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Chicken is cooked at 165 degrees. 
  • Serve hot and enjoy.


If you have extra chipotle spice left over, seal it in an airtight container and use within a couple weeks. It is delicious on chicken, shrimp, pork or even fish!
For a family of 4 for dinner, 32 combined drums and flats is a good meal with a side salad. For a delicious dressing, combine Chipotle Tabasco with olive oil and lime juice. Top with some tomatoes, cheddar cheese, corn, black beans and some crumbled tortilla chips. It's awesome.
