Season chicken wings with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning to taste. Arrange wings on a cooling rack that can be placed inside a baking sheet. If you don’t have a cooling rack, simply place the wings on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes.
While the wings are baking, you can make the wing sauce. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine butter, honey, Slap Ya Mama Pepper Sauce and Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning. Mix well and simmer about 10 minutes.

Yields About 20 Wings

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Rinse and dry pork roast and place in a dutch oven. In a food processor combine onion, Slap Ya Mama seasonings, brown sugar, garlic cloves, oregano, olive oil, and vinegar. Pulse until completely combined. Pour the mixture over the pork. Rub into all the nooks and crannies. Add 1 1/2 cups water around the bottom of the pork roast, cover tightly and roast for at least 5 hours, turning over every hour. Check to make sure roast is fork tender, then shred the meat using two forks to help pull it apart. I kept the meat in the juices so it would stay moist.
Serve pork on warm flour tortillas and add your favorite toppings. I used our favorite salsa, shredded cheddar, sour cream, fresh diced tomatoes and it wouldn’t be the same without squeezing fresh lime wedges over the top! Enjoy!
