easy does it

Grateful parents hail September as back-to-school month, but there are still plenty of great excuses to get together and share some good-time foods—birthdays, tailgates, the gorgeous fall weather. And in the spirit of Labor Day, those recipes should require little (or no) effort. So we asked Taste of Home readers and Facebook friends for their best instant party foods. Here are just a few. Taco-flavored chicken wingsare always a hit. Mix 1 envelope taco seasoning, 2 Tbsp. oil, 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar and 1 tsp. hot pepper sauce. Toss with 4 lbs. chicken wingettes.
