It's surprising what a quick substitution or two will do. By simply switching from full-fat products to reduced- or low-fat, you can often save lots of fat and calories while keeping flavor and texture. In this recipe, chopped green chilies add the right amount of zip. —Leigh Thomas, Hahira, Georgia

"I found this recipe in the 2010 Summer Appetizers booklet, under the name of Mexican Pinwheels. I have made this several times, and always, without fail, the platter is empty before half the guests arrive. So now I make a double batch. Made it again this past weekend, and realized I did not have the ripe olives so I used the pimento stuffed green olives and THAT added even more flavor. This field editor rates this recipe a 5 Star Hit."
