While I was in college, my roommates and I loved the taste of ranch dressing - it was our condiment of choice for almost everything. So I created these rich delectable crab enchiladas - with ranch dressing mix as my secret ingredient.

Optional: Chopped green onions and tomatoes, shredded lettuce and additional sliced ripe olives
In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, dressing mix and 3 tablespoons milk until smooth. Set aside 3/4 cup for topping.
In a large skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Stir in the crab, olives, chiles, pepper and salt. Fold crab mixture and 1-1/2 cups Monterey Jack into remaining cream cheese mixture.
Spoon about 2/3 cup down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Combine the remaining milk and reserved cream cheese mixture until blended; pour over tortillas.
Sprinkle with Colby and remaining Monterey Jack. Cover and bake 350° for 25 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve with the green onions, tomatoes, lettuce and olives if desired.
