Fall is officially in the air! In my home this means party time! Between 3 birthdays and two major holidays, plus school activities, we are swamped and constantly on the go. I recently became a member of Sam's Club (Finally, I mean a family of 7 should qualify me IMMEDIATELY into applying, right?) and I am stoked about all the time and money saved by going through them. Plus, they are your one-stop shop for party food, like a package of bulk size chicken wings to make my amazingly simple guava BBQ wings recipe!
How To Create The Ultimate Fall Football Get Together On A Budget
It starts with preparing a menu. Figure out what you're making and for how many people. I love to be involved in the action and not stuck in the kitchen. Sam's Club offers Members Mark products like their Sam's Club Member's Mark 16" Take 'N Bake Pizza that is the perfect pizza to have in your fridge ready to be baked for a perfect from the oven pizza experience. I always choose both pepperoni and cheese, I mean, best of both worlds, right?
What's also great about the Member's Mark 16" Take 'N Bake Pizza is that it literally cooks in 15 minutes, uses non-GMO tomatoes from California, and their queso aka cheese is 100% real whole-milk cheese!
Next is making sure you're loaded up on drinks! I choose to get Coca-Cola® products because it's versatile, inexpensive, and a tried and true soda we all love. Growing up, Coca-Cola® was always stocked in the fridge and a family favorite at all festivities, then all of a sudden I turned 12 and my mom fell in love with Diet Coke®. Until this day, whenever my mom is coming over to visit, I make sure to have a few cans of Diet Coke® for her. I think she loves it because she enjoys the classic refreshing flavor of Coca-Cola® without the guilt of added calories.
As for me? I'll take the refreshing crisp-clean taste of Sprite® all day long! 100 natural flavors?! Sign me up... actually, just go to my fully stocked fridge and pass me a can.
For the treat, I love the simplicity of grabbing a pre-made bakery item that has the true homemade taste that this Member's Mark Pumpkin Cheese Cake offers! I mean, it is AMAZING.
Then, you need a star of the show. For this gathering, I made my Instant Pot Guava BBQ glazed chicken wings recipe.
How To Make Guava BBQ Chicken Wings In The Instant Pot
For this recipe, I used 7 pounds of wings, and just cut the joint to separate the wing from the drum. Seasoned it with adobo, oregano, and added water to the Instant Pot and cooked it for 5 minutes.
Once the wings are cooked, place them into a pan, glaze them with the homemade guava BBQ sauce and bake them for a few minutes so the glaze sets in and gets sticky.
Then serve it on a platter tray! Garnish with cilantro, if desired for a cute look!
I went ahead and also made my Guava BBQ Meatballs with Tajin using the 6 pounds of pre-made Italian meatballs from Sam's Club, because my tribe loves variety!
That's it mi gente! This party is wrapped up, time to clean up and put away any leftover Coca-Cola® and pack any leftover Member's Mark pizza for lunch tomorrow. Be sure to go to Sam's Club to grab amazing items for your next party and check out Coca-Cola® for more delicious goodness!
