Usually you are given blue cheese sauce and celery with your wings if you order them in a restaurant. You will find better side dishes you can make at home that are conventional. Take 1 teaspoon sliced cilantro, ½ teaspoon pepper, 6 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola blue cheese, ½ cup sour cream and ½ cup buttermilk and mix them all together. This will give you a homemade Gorgonzola dipping sauce. You can chop together equal parts of celery, carrots and jicama root with a bit of sour cream on top if you want some cool slaw rather than celery sticks.

You really should make a sweet-hot relish salad. In order to do this, chop and mix a cucumber, your favorite pepper, garlic cloves, two medium carrots and one red onion. The vegetables can then be soaked in a combination of 2 teaspoons fresh dill, 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, ¼ cup sugar and 1 ½ cups vinegar, or you can do half vinegar and half vodka.

Water just makes the burn worse, so when trying to relieve the burn, do not use it. A different idea is to create a spread for crackers.

If nothing else, a few slices of good bread and a glass of milk will always help.
