  • 3-4 lbs chicken wings drums & flats
  • 2 Limes
  • 5 Tbsp Chile Limón Seasoning I used Spiceology- but you can also get other brands at Trader Joe’s or your local supermarket
  • 1-2 Tbsp Corn Starch

Avocado Crema Ingredients

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Mexican Table Cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Salt


Smoking Chile Lime Chicken Wings

  • For the wings you will want to add the following to a large ziploc bag and combine well: 3 lbs Chicken Wings, juice of 2 limes, zest of 1 lime and 3 TBSP Chile Limon seasoning.
  • Remove as much air as possible, seal the bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to cook, preheat your smoker to 180° F. Drain juice from bag and add wings to a mixing bowl. Add the other 2 Tbsp Chile Limón Seasoning and 1-2 Tbsp Corn Starch and mix thoroughly.
  • Place wings on grill and smoke for 30 minutes.

Avocado Crema

  • Add avocado, Mexican Table Cream, Cilantro, zest and juice of 1 lime, hot sauce and salt into a blender. Blend well. I used a Blendtec but you could use a blender or anything like it. If it’s too thick, you can add milk until it reaches the consistency you’d like.
  • Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • After 30 minutes, increase the heat on your smoker too 500°F and grill wings until they reach an internal temperature of 175°F on an internal temperature thermometer, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove wings from grill, place on serving dish and drizzle your avocado crema over your wings and garnish with chopped cilantro, fresh limes and more hot sauce.
