      I made these for dinner tonight,and must say that we liked them very much. I only added a tsp. of chili powder to the sauce and a bit of cumin,and it was downright tasty! The only change I'll make the next time,is to skip the onions - they really didn't soften, and I did add chopped chiles,because we like them. But,as I said, the sauce is wonderful, and I will make these again. Have done it many times before, but the sauce pretty much bit it...Thanks!

      Very good recipe, next time I make I'll omit (or reduce by 2/3) the amount of olives. They added much too much saltiness, but the resulting dish was still very good. This is very authentic, similar to what one of my former (Mexican) coworkers would bring to potlucks at work.

      Very easy to make and pretty good. One thing I did change was to not soften the tortilla in the pan with oil; this just adds unnecessary grease. Instead we usually just put them in the microwave for a minute or 2 to soften them up. I followed the rest of the recipe after that and it came out just fine. Thanks!
