These have been a staple at all three of my children's graduation open houses and any family get-together. My kids have even been known to ask for them as a main course at dinner time!

Easy and delicious, that is the type of party food we like. The sauce is indeed zesty and tangy, but a bit sweet too. We loved the bold flavors in this appetizing dish. These would be great for a tailgate, game night, or can be fancy enough to serve at a holiday party. Easy, easy, easy!
