These are not true enchiladas. My family does not like the sauce in real ones, but this is what they call them. This is very filling meal. I take to family parties and always come home with an empty dish.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F, grease 13x9 pan
  2. Dice chicken breasts and cook in frying pan
  3. When chicken is done add taco season as per packet directions. Simmer for 5 minutes
  4. Take 1 flour tortilla, put some shredded cheese across the tortilla then add chicken. (I use a large serving spoon, but amount of chicken is up to you.) Then roll and place in pan with seam side down.
  5. Repeat til all chicken is done. Might need another pan.

  8. While baking dice tomatoes, slice olives and green onions (using stalk and all), and warm nacho cheese.
  9. When done cut each enchilada in half and plate one half in center of plate and other half leaning with cut side up.
  10. Around enchilada place tortilla chips. Top with tomatoes, olives, green onions and drizzle nacho cheese over the top. Add dollop of sour cream and add a few green onions for decorations.
