Homemade Hot Wing Sauces

With the Superbowl right around the corner, I am sure that many of you will be making some sort of hot wings for appetizers during game day. I know in my home, we have tons of food on this day and it can get pretty expensive purchasing store bought wing sauces. Why not try making your own this year? Homemade hot wing sauces not only taste better than store bought, but you are able to control the ingredients which makes them also healthier.

Here are just a few of my favorite all time sauces that I am sure you will love just as much as I do! Those Superbowl fans of yours will be rooting for more of your homemade goodies just as well as rooting for their team!
