    Step 1

    Ingredients and my cooking supplies Preheat oven to 350

    Step 2

    I like to use shredded chicken or turkey in ours. I have also used ground meat, but I prefer shredded meat better. Anyways either shred or chop up the meat. I chop the onion and mix it into the meat

    Step 3

    Put a layer of enchilada sauce in your pan, put remaining sauce in bowl

    Step 4

    Dip tortillas in sauce and layer on the bottom of the pan so it's covered

    Step 5

    Like this

    Step 6

    Next add chicken onion mixture

    Step 7

    Then cheese and olives (optional). I have also added green chiles before but I need this one to be kid friendly =] Bake until cheese is melted, about 20 min. Allow to cool and enjoy!
