My favorite spring and summer evenings involve sitting on the patio with a bunch of neighbors, watching the kids play wiffle ball in the backyard. My husband is always at the grill, so we are constantly on the lookout for new grilling ideas.

I mean, seriously: is there anything that says “summer” more than a bunch of people gathered around a grill? When the weather gets warm, we spend a ton of time outside. We live in a neighborhood full of kids, and we always end up with extra people in our yard.

A few weeks ago, we were at Sam’s Club and saw these new Smokehouse Flavor Tyson Grillin’ Wings.

They are fully cooked, and you can put them on the grill right out of the bag — while they’re still frozen! Talk about easy party food!

While the wings are delicious on their own, we decided we could make them even better. So we whipped up a Bacon Chipotle Barbecue Sauce and a Cilantro Ranch Dipping Sauce. And oh my goodness, did they end up being good. The smokehouse flavor of the wings really brought out the smokiness of the bacon.

Now, I have a thing about ranch. I have been known to order food in restaurants based solely on whether or not they can be dipped in ranch. Amazingly, though, this was the first time I ever made homemade ranch. This was so easy to make, and it ended up being creamy and amazing. It would also be perfect on salads and as a dip for veggies or french fries. I’m not sure I’ll buy ranch ever again.

Barbecue sauce is another thing I think people might be a little intimidated to make, but it too is super easy. You pretty much just toss everything in a pot and let it cook for a couple of hours. That’s it. This sauce isn’t crazy spicy, but it has a great little kick to it. Delicious.

For parties, I love serving wings and dipping sauce in a chip-and-dip bowl. It’s an easy, casual way to get everything out there for a relaxed get together. {Bonus: there’s only one dish to wash!}

To drink, there’s nothing better than a big pitcher of Country Time Lemonade. Pick up a giant can of it when you’re at Sam’s Club getting your wings, and you’ll be set for the summer!

My husband is crazy excited about these wings for tailgating in the fall. Just toss the bag into the cooler, and then onto the grill when we get there. Could not be easier.
