However, I've been doing the traditional butter wings lately and wanted something different. A month or two ago in the store I came across a new hot sauce: Valentina Salsa Picante. Lets break this sauce down first:
When I popped open the bottle, the aroma of the chili pepper hit my memory files. They say memory is tied to scent, and I remembered having this sauce. Its been used as a suicide sauce at some pub that I have been to, but where? It has a nice light burn that really gets to the back of the throat. This is a great 'suicide' sauce for beginners, who want to feel like they can eat really spicy (when its not). The flavour doesn't really stand out, but it is nice. It might be good on Mexican food, something that doesn't overwhelm the taste buds, but adds a little snap of heat. But on wings, more of the flavour comes out as its not competing with guacamole or taco meat.
I actually split my wings in two to have two flavours of wings. I wanted the spicy for sure, but then I had my spicy BBQ. Although its not complicated, I'm not ready yet to give away my spicy BBQ secret. What I can tell you is that it is very close to the Spicy BBQ at Duff's.
I also sliced up some potato in an attempt to make my own homemade fries. I love fresh cut fries from a fry wagon with the skins still on. Mine, on the other hand, did not turn out right. Oh they looked perfect to me - but the potato itself I think needed to be soaked in water longer than I did.
