2 T. Butter
3 T. All Purpose Flour
8 Oz. Sour Cream
2 C. Chicken Broth

Wrap tortillas in foil. Heat in 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place 1/4 cup filling atop each tortilla, roll-up. Arrange rolls, seam side down in a lightly greased 12X7X2 in. baking dish.
Top w/ remaining sauce. Cover w/ foil and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Remove, uncover and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake uncovered for another 5 minutes.
