Super Bowl Chicken/Cheese Enchiladas

There are a ton of Super Bowl Party recipes all
over the the Internet and they always seem to have
enchiladas (cheese, beef or chicken) as one of the
favorite foods (so with that in mind) here is a easier
enchilada recipe that DOES NOT TAKE AS MUCH
TIME as most do. That's because it's LAYERED
instead of individually stuffed & rolled.

Last week I made beef enchiladas for some
neighbors & had not done it in along time...
As I started making the beef filling & frying up
each tortilla I started remembering why I don't
make them very often..IT TOOK MOST OF THE
DAY!!!!My neighbor told me how much he loved
them... My husband raved about them I'm
happy I made them..

However, I wanted to try a faster way with chicken
I needed to use up. (Remember my New Year's
Resolution..(use up what you have) I combined
an old family recipe & came up with this chicken
& cheese enchilada recipe which took me 25 min.
(if you have your meat already cooked) plus 25 min.
in the oven. You could also easily exchange the
chicken for a beef mixture..That would taste
great, too.

9 corn tortillas
2 c. chicken (cooked & chopped)
Enchilada Sauce (or you can use store bought)
1 (14.5) oz can diced tomatoes
1 (8oz.) sm. tomato sauce
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 c. shredded (Mexican blend) cheese
1 sm. can black olives (sliced)

1) Heat oven to 350F.
In a blender put diced tomatoes & blend
a few seconds til smooth. Pour pureed tomatoes
into saucepan. Add chili powder, salt, garlic
powder, & sm.tomato sauce. SEE BELOW:
2) Spread 1/4 c. enchilada sauce in bottom of a
9" pie plate or similar type dish. SEE BELOW:
3) Pour some of the sauce on to a another plate
(or shallow dish) to dip each tortilla in before
placing it in layered dish. Then begin to LAYER
tortillas, chicken, sauce, cheese & repeat
a couple of times until ingredients are gone.
4) Top with remaining cheese/olives & Bake for
25 min. or until filling is hot & bubbling.
