This is seriously one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. It is also family friendly, budget conscious and super tasty…gotta love that!

You can find the Mexican Spice Mix recipe here

You could use chicken wings (or little wingettes) as well, which would be great as party food, just saying! Just remember to adjust the cooking time accordingly as these wouldn’t need quite as long.
