Crissy's Tortilla Roll Ups

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 cup sour cream

1 (1 ounce) package dry fiesta-style ranch dressing mix

1 cup chunky salsa

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

10 (10 inch) flour tortillas

After spreading on the tortilla shells, I wrapped each one in saran wrap and placed them nice and snug in a rectangle bowl or dish. Cut right before eating. Serve with sour cream and/or salsa for dipping.
