These are sometimes called "tortilla rollups". They include cream cheese seasoned with ranch dip mix, rolled up in a tortilla with dried beef, olives, green chilies and pimientos(if using). Other variations could include roast beef and horseradish in place of the dried beef and olives, or salsa and sour cream for a mexican version. I adapted this from a Ladies Auxiliary of Greenacres Baptist Church cookbook.
