    • 4 Habanero peppers, cored and seeded completely
    • 1 tsp peeled fresh ginger

Pulverize the onions, peppers, and ginger in a food processor. Put the mixture in a bowl and stir in the allspice, cinnamon, thyme, bay leaf, brown sugar, black pepper, vinegar, and soy sauce.

In another metal bowl, add the wings. Pour fresh lime juice over the wings and add the marinade. Toss the wings in the marinade and refrigerate for one hour, tossing again half way through the refrigeration process.
