For celebrations we did what any group of blokes would do and that was to eat great food with some cold beer.

Thanks to Edgo and Misty for their wing support and taking on the tasting for the evening.

Ancho Fire Wings

I always enjoy cooking with new ingredients especially when it comes to chilli’s.
You can find out more about Ancho Chilli’s and it’s history here.

The chile is definitely not as hot as other chiles, however it does pack a deep flavour and aroma, which makes me understand why it’s such a popular Mexican Chilli.
