  • 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.  
  • With a mixing bowl and masher, mash the sour cream, queso fresca, shredded Jack and green onions until fluffy. Adjust ratios as needed. Primary ingedients are sour cream and queso fresca. The shredded jack for texture and green onions for flavor.
  • Fry tortillas in oil to give them a little crispiness and prevent soggy enchiladas.
  • Pour ½ cup of the enchilada sauce into a 9x13 inch, rectangular baking dish. Fill tortillas with equal portions of filling, then roll. Don't leave air pockets in rolled enchiladas. Place seam side down in baking dish.  
  • Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Press the ends of the enchiladas down into the sauce, to keep them from drying out. Sprinkle with shredded 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.
