Heat Enchilada Sauce and keep it warm on the stove.
Heat vegetable oil to soften the tortillas. Using kitchen tongs,
slide a tortilla into the hot oil, but instead of taking it out
after a few seconds, allow it to cook until it is just barely semi-crisp,
that is, still pliable but becoming crunchy. When the tortilla is
the proper texture, remove it from the oil and place it in the warm
sauce. Immediately place another tortilla into the oil to cook.
When this second tortilla is almost crisp, remove the first tortilla
from the sauce to a serving plate, sprinkle on some cheese, onions
and olives, then place the second tortilla in the sauce. Continue
in this manner until all 12 tortillas have been added to the stack,
as well as a final topping of cheese, olives and onions. After the
final topping of sauce, add a dollop of sour cream.
Serve the enchiladas with Mexican Rice and/or Refried Beans.
