    Starting to mix in the tortilla strips

  2. Once the onions turn translucent, add in the chicken, beans, enchilada sauce, olives, and spices. Let simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring to mix it all up, allowing it to soak up all that delicious flavor! Preheat your oven to broil.
  3. Then add in the tortilla strips, mix slightly (you want the tortilla to be covered in the saucey mix, but still towards the top of your pan.
  4. Sprinkle the top with your cheese (don’t mix in), and then put it in the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on it! You want the cheese to be melted and the tortilla strips a bit crunchy, but not burnt!
  5. Scoop onto plates or into bowls and ENJOY! (This serves 3-4 :))
