- What's up guys? I'm Julian and I'm sure you know by now chips in food is absolutely the rage. That bein' said, I'm gonna show you maybe something you haven't seen, hot Cheeto wings. That's right, two amazing things collabed into one. You are gonna love this recipe, so let's get started. So, what I got here? I have my hot Cheeto dust. What I did was, I just put this in a blender, blended it up until it was nice and fine. I'm gonna use this for my flour. So we're just gonna put this in here. Nice, some handfuls. Make sure it's about equal parts of flour to hot Cheeto dust. All right, that looks good. And now what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna take my wings here, that I've got my wing tips still on. I like 'em that way. Just gonna put all these in the flour, and we're just gonna batter these up. Whoo, I can already tell this is gonna be absolutely delicious. All right let's make sure my oil is ready. Oh yeah. Here we go, flavor bombs away. So with chicken wings, especially this big, you wanna give 'em at least eight minutes. Really important you cook the chicken all the way through. The good thing about it is the more you cook it the more you really fry and concentrate that flavor. So as long as they're not burning, you know they're doin' really, really good. Whoo! So my wings are good to go on my first batch, so I'm gonna pull them out and then drop my second ones in. I'm tellin' you this is crispy, crunchy, spicy, savory deliciousness. Can you hear 'em? They're singin'. So now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna finish it in my red hot Cheeto dust. The color is so vibrant, so beautiful. We got the red from the red hot, that golden brown from that flour that's crusted in that beautiful chicken. So, so good. And just because I don't know if anybody's done this yet, we're gonna hot Cheeto bay this. Pow! Super excited to try this, guys. Here we go. Mm! Oh my gosh.
