  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9X13 pan and pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of the pan. Pour sauce in a pie tin to dip tortillas in. Start out with 6 tortillas on the bottom of the pan. Try to cover the bottom of the pan, the tortillas will overlap a bit.

  2. Spread out meat, some of the green onions, salsa and a little cheese to help hold it together. Then cover with 6 more dipped tortillas. Keep layering with beans and cheese, then 6 more dipped tortillas. You get the idea.

  3. The final layer is sliced avocados and a little sour cream, then cover with 6 more dipped tortillas. Pour the remaining sauce over the top and cover with cheese, some green onions and the sliced olives. Bake at 350 for 40-45 min., or until the cheese is bubbling. Let cool for 10-15 min. before slicing. Top serving with a dollop of sour cream and/or salsa.

  4. Notes: Pre-cooked rice, drained canned corn or sliced summer squash makes a good extra layer. Just add a little cheese to help hold it together. Use red, blue or yellow corn tortillas for something different. Try diced tomatoes instead of salsa for a milder flavor, or substituting/adding sliced jalepeno rings for the olives makes an even spicier version. Serve with a green salad and you have a complete meal. Enjoy!
