Chicken Wing Shortage? 5 Latin Recipes Perfect for Super Bowl Sunday

Ortega

By now, you’ve heard reports about a chicken wing shortage in our great US of A.

The news made many Super Bowl fans panic and probably caused a large chunk of them to brainstorm other great alternatives – including us. TIME later reported that there was indeed no shortage, but more like a “crisis” because of a sharp rise in prices for wings.

We’ve still got you covered with these five delicious Latin-inspired ideas for you, thanks to our friends at The Latin Kitchen.

Enjoy these delightful companions – oh, and the game of course:
