Ranch Enchiladas Creamas Verdes

You all know my famiy's love of Mexican food and my love of trying new things.  So when I saw this recipe over at An 'A' for Effort I just knew it would be amazing because she makes the best things!! It did not let me down.  Due to my lack of certain ingredients I adapted it a bit and loved it so much! The added ranch dressing brings added flavor.  I will be making these again and soon.  Everyone loved them.

4 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup ranch dressing , divided
flour tortillas
1 C half and half or heavy cream
3C shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
