Cheesy Holiday Party Apps

I am having my Christmas party this Friday and I think I am too cheesy, I am making:

Stuffed mushrooms with sausage and cheese
Blue Cheese and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Gougers
Cheese Board
Spanikopita - with feta and spinach
Hot Clam Dip- with bacon, spinach and two kinds of cheese
Puff Pastry with Pesto and sundried tomato and Mozzarella
Bloody Mary Shrimp
Roasted spiced nuts, olives, crackers, etc

Aside from the shrimp and olives and nuts I think I am too Cheesy- any good ideas for some nice light apps that don't contain cheese? I do only finger foods since it is a cocktail party.

Also bonus points for an app that will help me to use up some of the Chipotle peppers in adobo that have seem to grown in my fridge, I keep buying it and only using partial and now have 3-4 butter containers filled with it in my fridge, lol!
