With summer on its way out and football season around the corner, it’s time to break out some delicious tailgate certified recipes to bid summer farewell and welcome a new season of pigskin, foam fingers and body paint. Here is a tasty Baja Chicken and Slaw Slider recipe from Taste of Home’s August/September issue that I absolutely love (You guys know how I feel about coleslaw.) The sliders have a flavorful spicy sauce and colorful crunchy slaw just finishes up the meal. Bon appetit!
