  • To make the enchilada sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add flour, whisking for 1 minute, until a golden roux forms.
  • Add the remaining dry seasonings through to the oregano, whisking to combine.
  • Gradually add the stock, continually whisking, to prevent any lumps.
  • Whisk in the tomato paste. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add 1 tablespoon 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.
  • Fill tortillas with equal portions of chicken, then the onion/bell pepper mixture, and finally half the cheese, and half the cilantro.
  • Top with 1 tablespoon enchilada sauce, roll, and place seam side down in baking dish.
  • Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the enchiladas, then sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Top with sliced olives.
  • Cover baking dish 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.
