Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers
Restaurant-style poppers are delicious — but they take a lot of planning to pull off (not to mention a deep fryer). These cheesy, spicy treats pack in all the flavor, but they only take an hour to put together, and you only need four ingredients — not including spices. Go ahead and give them a try. No one needs to know they were a last-minute addition!

Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Nachos
Nachos are the ultimate last-minute snack. Pile some chips into a sheet pan, top with your favorite ingredients and some cheese, and bake. You've got a hearty, delicious snack-able plate in no time. The smart trick to this one: Use rotisserie chicken, pre-shredded cheese and canned beans, so it's extra fast.
