Heat the water with the hot sauce, cayenne powder and salt and bring to a boil.
Add the chicken wings to it and cook for about 12-15 mins
Preheat the oven to 375F
In a medium bowl big enough to hold the wings, mix together the butter, taco seasoning, hot sauce, salt and garlic powder to a paste.
Drain the wings and toss with the paste in the bowl.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line the coated chicken wings on it.
Bake for 15-20 mins, turning the wings once halfway through, till both sides are crisped enough.
Serve with some blue cheese dip or ranch dressing.
