Make chicken nachos by cooking 1-1/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add 1 package taco seasoning mix, an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce, 1 cup chopped red bell pepper and a 15-ounce can of drained black beans. Stir in a can of sweet corn and 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese, cooking until the cheese melts. Distribute 42 tortilla chips among six serving plates, and spoon the nacho mixture on top. Sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro and 1 cup Mexican cheese over nachos.

To make smoked salmon pinwheels, combine 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed with 1 package reduced-fat softened cream cheese. Spread the cream cheese mixture on 4 flour tortillas, and distribute 1/4 cup chopped smoke salmon between tortillas. Place 3 or 4 spinach leaves over the salmon, and top with strips of red bell pepper. Roll up and seal the tortillas, and wrap and chill them for two hours. Slice them into 1-inch pieces before serving.
