Sometimes the best laid plans don't exactly go according to the rules. We were prepping for a dinner of nachos and everything was smelling and looking great. Open the pantry and no chips !!! And so we decided to pile it on a burger bun and so the Nacho Burger was born. It's not the prettiest thing but it tastes like nachos - just not crunchy !
