Ingredients

  • one medium yellow onion chopped 
  • 3 cups shredded turkey or chicken meat 
  • 15 corn tortillas 
  • 1.75 cups green chile enchilada sauce 
  • 1.5 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or mexican blend 
  • 1/2 cup  black olives
  • 1/4 cup green onions 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Heat 1/4 cup of sauce and onions on medium high heat until onions are translucent and tender.
  • Add the meat with another 3/4 cup of the sauce.  Heat on medium until heated throughout. 
  • Add a huge spoonful of sauce (1/4 cup) to the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  
  • Layer a single layer of tortillas across the bottom.  We used 5 tortillas, 2 rows of 2 full ones next to a half of one.  
  • Add 1/2 of the meat mixture, sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. 
  • Add another layer of tortillas with an additional 1/4 cup of sauce, then add the remaining meat mixture, followed by 1/4 cup cheese sprinkled on top.  
  • Add your last layer of tortillas, followed by 1/4 cup sauce and top with 1 cup of cheese.
  • Top with black olives and green onions.  
  • Bake on 350F for 30 minutes, make sure to bake until it is heated to 165F in the center.  It should be crispy and bubbly on top.
