Nachos
Nachos don't take any longer to make for a crowd than they do for one person.

If you happen to have leftover chili -- or ground beef or shredded chicken -- in the fridge, what better use for it than as a topping for nachos! But if you don't have already-cooked meat on hand, no worries; nachos are just as bueno without it. Add cheese to a heap of tortilla chips, and microwave for a minute or so to melt the queso (nuking cheese doesn't count as cooking). Then, just pile on the toppings -- think guacamole, black beans, salsa, chopped green onions, sour cream and jalapeƱos -- and it's dinnertime!
