This is the way my Mom has been making enchiladas my whole life. She got the basic recipe from neighbors when she was a teenager. They are made with flour tortillas instead of corn and get a pasty texture which we enjoy. We always eat this with Rice Chile Verde for a nice unhealthy comfort food meal. My Mom has also frozen these alongside the rice chile verde in aluminum containers...they bake up great in the oven!

Directions

  1. Cook chicken breasts and shred.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  5. Optional: If tortillas are going to crack you can warm them in the oven or dip them in enchilada sauce.
  6. Place a scant 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture on each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish. **Use 1/3 cup of chicken mixture in thin tortillas.**.
  7. After all of the tortillas are filled and in the baking dish pour all of the remaining enchilada sauce over them.
  8. Top with the remaining 2/3 cups of shredded cheeses and sliced olives.
  9. Bake for 35 minutes or until bubbly.
