  • 4 pounds of chicken wings, separated and wing tips discarded
  • 2 eggs beaten with 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cups ground tortilla chips, (I crushed the chips with my hand and filled my blender up to the 5 cups line, this will give you about 2 cups of ground chips)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

For the Toppings:

  • Pickled jalapeños
  • Fresh PICO DE GALLO or diced tomatoes
  • Fresh or store bought guacamole
  • Sour Cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Set up three bowls for a breading station, the flour in one, the crushed tortilla chips in another and the eggs in the third.
  3. Combine the cumin, salt and pepper in a small dish and then use it to season the wings on both sides.
  4. Dip each wing in the flour first, then the eggs and then finally the ground tortilla chips.
  5. Place onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and repeat with the remaining wings.
  6. Spray the wings with cooking spray (or you can use and olive oil mister) and put them in the oven for 35 minutes until browned and crispy.
  7. Remove the wings from the oven and cover each wing with some of the grated cheese, then place back in the oven for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  8. Top the wings with the guacamole, salsa and pickled jalapeños and serve.

Recipe Notes

To make the guacamole sauce for drizzling, smooth store bought guacamole works best. Fill a sealable bag with the guacamole and snip a small hole in one corner of the bag. Drizzle over the chicken wings right before serving.
