Buffalo Artichoke Wings

As I do every year when the super bowl and oscars are approaching, I’ve been thinking about the most important part of either of these events: the food. Yes the outcomes are “important”, but regardless of who you want to win…grazing around a table for hours is something everyone can get behind!

In my opinion, you can’t have a party without buffalo SOMETHING. Sometimes it’s a dip or a pizza, but after stumbling upon this recipe for buffalo artichoke “wings”, I just HAD to give them a try! Not only are they super easy to make, but like pretty much anything fried, they are ridiculously tasty.

With about 10 ingredients in a little over half an hour, you’ll be enjoying a spicy, crunchy, delicious buffalo ‘wing’.

I hope you make them and love them as much as we did!

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, and chili powder.

Whisk in the beer until smooth. Add in water, as needed, to thin the batter so it’s reminiscent of a thin crepe/pancake batter.
