--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   3                    chipotle peppers -- stems removed
   2                    dried red New Mexican chiles
   1      medium        onion -- chopped
   2      tablespoons   vegetable oil
   2      cloves        garlic -- minced
   3                    piquin chiles -- crushed
     3/4  cup           ketchup

Cover dried chiles with hot water and let sit for 15 minutes.  Drain.  Saute the onion in oil until soft.  Add garlic, cook for another 3 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients except for the chicken wings, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.  Remove from heat, and puree in a blender until smooth. Cook over a slow fire, turning frequently, until done--about 30 minutes. Baste liberally with the sauce during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
