Beat cream cheese and sour cream until smooth.  Stir in cheese, olives, salt, garlic powder, jalapeño and cilantro.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.  Place black beans in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.  Spread each tortilla with a layer of the cheese mixture and top with a layer of the black beans.  Roll the tortillas tightly and cover with plastic wrap.  Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.  To serve, cut the ends off each tortilla and discard.  Then cut the tortillas into 3/4 inch slices and arrange on a platter.  Serve with a dollop of salsa.
