These Crunchy, Spicy Wings Are Crusted With Cheetos!June 7, 2020
Last week, we took simple, healthy oatmeal, and turned it into an artery-clogging bowl of bacon-topped oats…with lots of cheese. Well this time, we scrapped the whole healthy-to-unhealthy, and went for fatty-to-fattier: deep-fried Jalapeño Cheetos-crusted chicken wings.
Don’t let the orange throw you off, the wings come out crispy and surprisingly flavourful with just the right level of saltiness, if that was what you were worried about. One wing will leave you hankering for more, as well as fingertips with artificial cheesy remnants.
