Chicken Enchiladas

Recipe by Vida G.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I play with it to my likes. It is real enchilada sauce that is worth the work. I have never tasted the can and I dont think I want to. I have a family of 7 and when I make this it's all gone.

Yummy! I assumed the olives mentioned in the directions were chopped ripe olives. Turned out great!
