3 oz Velveeta cheese, cut up
2 oz shredded low fat Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Coat a 9x9" baking pan with cooking spray. Drain and rinse rice pearls.  Drain again and dab very well with paper towels to dry.  Spoon into a bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon each salsa and enchilada sauce, let sit 10 minutes.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain fat and return to skillet.  Stir in salsa, rice pearls, green onion and Velveeta.  Cook on low until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.  
Spoon 1/4 of the beef mixture down center of each tortilla or egg crepe leaving 1 1/2" border at the bottom. Fold up burrito style and place seam side down in the baking pan.  Drizzle enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with Cheddar.  Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes or until melted..
