Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings arranged on a tray with a Chipotle Ranch dip in the center of the tray

Now that football season has officially started (I’m so excited!), I thought I would share with y’all this awesome Whole30 Cilantro Lime Wings with Chipotle Ranch recipe. Football and wings go hand in hand, right?

Sometimes it’s kind of fun to spice things up and make wings that aren’t covered in buffalo sauce. Although, you know how much I love anything with buffalo sauce! I mean, Buffalo Chicken Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers will always hold a special place in my heart. But, these Whole30 Cilantro Lime Wings with Chipotle Ranch are always a huge hit at tailgates or football parties!

I love serving mine with this easy Chipotle Ranch but you can choose whatever dipping sauce your heart desires. This chipotle ranch is super easy because it’s just chipotle seasoning mixed with Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch, which is amazing!
