Cheesy Enchiladas

*1 package (8 oz) FF cream cheese, softened
*1 package (8 oz) FF shredded cheddar cheese
*1/4 cup sliced green onions
* 6 flour tortillas
* 1 cup Thick and Chunky salsa

Beat cream cheese with electric mixer on Med. speed until smooth. Add 1 cup cheese and onions, mixing until blended.
Spread 1/4 cup cream cheese mixture down center, roll and place seam side down in 11x7 in. baking dish. Pour salsa over tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, and cover.
Bake at 35o degrees for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Serves 6
WW 4 points

*** Note*** I will use reduced fat cheese and up the points a bit, I also add sour cream when I serve them and some chopped black olives. Sometimes I add cooked chicken to the filling mixture, but need adjust points to reflect that.
