Hot wings with Red Savina Nectarine Sauce – hot like …




Hotter than a hussy sitting in church on Sunday morning, bless her soul.

Hot like a cat on a hot tin roof.

Hot enough to burn a polar bear’s butt.


Hot D-A-M-N !

Hot diggety !

Hot dog !



Hot and heavy like Elvis shaking his hips to “Don’t be cruel” on Ed Sullivan – CENSORED HOT!

Hot-to-trot like Marilyn Monroe in a wiggle dress.

Hot like Jane Russell’s controversial cleavage in the “Outlaw”… SCANDALOUS!



Too hot to handle ? Nope, just use gloves, watch my friend Nicole show you how.

To hot to eat ?  Of course not, but a little goes a long way.

You get it?  H-O-T, hot!  That’s why Melissa’s Red Savina Habanero peppers are perfect for … duh? HOT wings.  I balanced the heat with sweet summer nectarines, honey, molasses,  and a little splash of tequila for fun!  Use as little or as much of the Savina Pepper as you like, but if  you can’t stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen !

    Sexy….like a peach, a nectarine…or a Red Savina.

    Damn, now you got me craving chicken! I could eat that whole tray of wings (in my car with tinted windows, of course).

    Wow! Those look good enough to eat! Oh, wait a minute, that’s what they’re supposed to do. Just kidding. I’m imagining the hot with the sweet. Yum.

    These not only look wonderful, I bet they are amazing…. I heart Nectarines, and sometimes feel like they don’t get much of a spotlight. I’m sure paired with the red savina they are going to burn up together! 🙂 Thanks for the link back to my pickles…. 🙂

    I’ve had habaneros before… it’s potent stuff indeed! I do love it hot though and this recipe looks delicious.

    These look delicious! Since it is winter and nectarines are out of season, I will try substituting them with mangos. Can’t wait to try!
