Spread tortilla chips on a large plastic plate. Sprinkle on mild salsa and smother with cheese. Cover with wax paper and microwave until the cheese melts. (You can also sprinkle on refried beans or other toppings.)

Tortilla Roll-Ups

You will need small flour tortillas, meat slices (ham or turkey), cheese slices, mayonnaise, and toothpicks. Spread mayonnaise on the tortilla. Place a piece of meat and a slice of cheese on the tortilla. Roll it up. Slice into bite-size pieces and secure with a toothpick. Ole!
