· 1 cup sour cream

· 1/2 cup salsa

· 1/8 teaspoon salt

· 1 cup 4% cottage cheese

1. In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in broth and soup until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in sour cream, salsa, and salt; set aside.

2. Place cottage cheese in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; add the shrimp, crab, Monterey Jack cheese, chiles and cilantro.

3. Spread 1-1/2 cups sauce in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Place about 1/3 cup seafood mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down over sauce. Top with the remaining sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until heated through, 30-35 minutes. If desired, top with sliced jalapeno pepper, green onions and chopped cilantro. Serve with additional salsa.
