What do you do when you hubby rings you up and says, "Hey hun, remember we have people coming for lunch? Have you made anything? They're arriving in five minutes...?"
OK, first you kill him. And then you make nachos.
Problem, you have no minced beef.
That's OK. We have chicken.
So we make chicken nachos. And it takes five minutes. And it's so yummy, everybody is impressed, and happy - even the fussy kids...
