Fajita-style Grilled Wings with Red Jalapeño Aioli

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35-40 minutes
Makes: 6 servings


  • 2 lb. chicken wing, with skin, raw
  • 1 pack La Preferida Taco Seasoning*
  • 8 oz. La Preferida Mojo Marinade
  • 1 Tbsp. salt, Kosher, coarse
  • 1 Tbsp. spice, black pepper, ground
  • La Preferida Red Jalapeño Salsa
  • Garnish: cilantro, chopped

* Low Sodium option available 


Rinse chicken wings under cold water and pat dry, season with La Preferida Taco Seasoning, salt, and black pepper—allow to sit for 10 minutes, allow for salt to dissolve. Put wings in a ziplock bag and pour marinade, refrigerate for 10 minutes.

(Ziplock bags work best, but feel free to use a clean plastic bag or small bowl, just make sure to coat the chicken wings well)

Drain excess marinade from chicken wings. Place on grill, turn occasionally, until meat is no longer pink. If you have a thermometer, probe to 165º F. Take a chicken wing and check for done ness. Once done, place chicken wings on serving plate, allow to cool for about two minutes and garnish with cilantro.

The flat part of the chicken wing usually takes six minutes, three minutes per side. The drum takes 10 minutes, five minutes per side.

Serve with La Preferida Red Jalapeño Aioli

Two cups of light mayo and two tablespoons of La Preferida Red Jalapeño Salsa. Add sauce to mayo and blend until smooth.

Chef Tip: substitute one cup of mayo with Greek yogurt for a lighter version.
