  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • To make the enchilada sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour, whisking for 1 minute, until golden roux forms. Add the remaining dry seasonings through to the cumin, whisking to combine. Gradually add the stock, continually whisking, to prevent any lumps. Whisk in the tomato paste. Simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes.  
  • Add oil to a sauté pan set over medium heat. When hot add onions, peppers, and garlic, sauteing until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Season with Kosher salt and pepper; set aside. 
  • Wrap tortillas in a damp kitchen towel and microwave for 1-2 minutes until soft and pliable.  
  • Pour ½ cup of the enchilada sauce into a 9x13 inch, rectangular baking dish. Using half the cheese fill tortillas with equal portions of cheese, then the onion/bell pepper mixture, and finally half of the cilantro. Before rolling, top each enchilada with 1 tablespoon enchilada sauce, then roll, and place seam side down in baking dish.  
  • Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with sliced olives. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese has melted and sauce is bubbling. Remove from oven and garnish with remaining cilantro.
