Make your next backyard bash a hit with these recipes. Put a tropical twist on your favorite iced tea without tropical iced tea punch or, spice up your hot dog using our pineapple chipotle relish!
It’s a shame not every day can be Memorial Day; however, with the right products and a little know-how in the kitchen, you can make that backyard bash a day to remember.
It all starts with choosing the right ingredients and Walmart is there to help you every step of the way.
Online ordering is just one way Walmart simplifies the whole process.
As you can see, using your laptop or mobile device to order everything you need makes shopping a breeze.
When you get to the store, just pick-up your phone and let them know you’ve arrived. A friendly Walmart associate will be out shortly with your groceries.
After a quick review of any substitutions, you’ll be on your way.
Now, in our house, Tyson® chicken reigns king of all chicken products. For our chicken marinade, we used their Tyson® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts.
They were the perfect palate to compliment all those tropical flavors.
For the hot dogs, because let’s face it you can’t grill in your backyard and not have hot dogs, we prefer Ball Park® Hot Dogs.
Try our pineapple chipotle relish as a topping.
After the chicken has been marinated and cooked, Ball Park® buns are an awesome burger bun.
The buns hold up well to all that juicy grilled chicken.
Now that you have the food covered, you’re only missing one thing, the beverages.
Fortunately, Lipton® has your back with their iced tea bags.
In keeping with the tropical feel of this backyard bash, we’ve got an iced tea recipe below that’s sure to please everyone.
Just make sure you’re using Lipton® Iced Tea Bags.
With the food and drinks taken care of, you can relax and enjoy what really matters, family and friends.
This Memorial Day, be sure to treat your loved ones to quality Tyson®, Lipton®, and Ball Park® products.
Don’t forget to get all those ingredients at Walmart using their quick, simple online order and grocery pick-up services.

- Last serve them on a sandwich or as-is with any sides of your choice.
