12 Corn tortillas
1 package enchilada sauce mix
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tablespoons instant minced onion or 1/2 cup chopped fresh onion
2 cups shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese
1/4 cup chopped or sliced black olives

1. In a medium saucepan prepare enchilada sauce mix as directed on the package.

2. In a large fry pan, brown the ground beef and onion. Drain excess fat.

3. Stir 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into the meat mixture.

4. To assemble, dip each tortilla into the sauce. Spoon about 2 tablespoons meat mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese down the center of each tortilla. Roll into thirds and place seam side down in a 9 by 13 inch baking dish.

5. When all the tortillas are assembled, pour the remaining sauce over the top. Sprinkle with olives and extra cheese.

6. Cover with foil; bake in a 350 F oven for 20 minutes until heated through and the cheese is melted.
