Hi guys, I know a lot of us were bummed when watching the biggest loser the other night because their renovation of buffalo wings was hardly buffalo wings. This was on the WW website today so I thought I'd share for this Sunday!

Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dip
Was POINTS® Value: 12
Now POINTS® Value: 4
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 12 min
Cooking Time: 20 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients
1 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray, or enough to coat sheet
12 oz uncooked skinless chicken wing(s)
1 1/4 oz Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix, or similar product
1/2 cup(s) fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp blue cheese, or gorgonzola, crumbled
2 tbsp fat-free skim milk
4 medium stalk(s) celery, cut into 2-inch pieces

Instructions

* Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

* Place chicken wings in a zip-close plastic bag, add taco seasoning, seal bag and shake to coat. Transfer wings to prepared baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 18 to 20 minutes.

* Meanwhile, to prepare dip, whisk together sour cream, cheese and milk.

* Serve wings with dip and celery on the side. Yields about 3 wings, 3 tablespoons of dip and 1 celery stalk per serving.

Chef Tips

* We renovated Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dip by:
o Baking the wings instead of deep frying them in oil.

o Using fat-free sour cream and nonfat milk in the dip.

o Using Blue or Gorgonzola cheese – packed with flavor, a little goes a long way.

and if you want to make it really LAWL friendly (low sodium), I had this taco seasoning recipe saved (personally, I just buy the low sodium already made)

Recipe for Taco Seasoning
* 6 teaspoons of chili powder
* 5 teaspoons paprika
* 4 ½ teaspoons cumin
* 2 ½ teaspoons onion powder
* 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
* 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 2 low sodium or no sodium beef broth cubes or packets

Directions for Recipe for Taco Seasoning:
Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Mix by shaking well. Store in a cool dry place forup to 6 months.

This recipe for taco seasoning makes about ½ cup or 21 teaspoons. Side note: 7 teaspoons of this mix will equal one package of store bought taco seasoning for 1 lb of beef or turkey. Just add seasoning and 1 cup water.
