My favorite sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings is their Mango Habanero. It's the third hottest sauce on their list, and blends a good amount of heat with a nice touch of sweetness. Living on the north side of Evansville, simply swinging by Buffalo Wild Wings to pick up a bottle isn't always the most convenient thing, so I searched the internet to and found a recipe that I can make at home anytime the mood strikes.

Here's what you need:

  •  2 cups Mango Nectar*
  • Small bottle of Habanero Sauce*
  • 1 Tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter

*I found both the mango nectar and the habanero sauce in the "Hispanic" aisle of the grocery store. The mango nectar looked like a can of soda.

Here's what to do:

Pour the mango nectar into a sauce pan, add the amount of habanero sauce you want, and stir. It should be a nice bright orange. Simmer over medium heat, stir every so often until it reduces to roughly 1/4 cup volume. Stir in corn syrup, cayenne sauce and melted butter.

I wound up going a tad overboard with the habanero and wound up adding some honey to bring down the heat. Once cooled store in a plastic container (I used an clean ketchup bottle) and toss with chicken wings, or jazz up chicken tacos by squirting some on top.
