For enchilada sauce
Vegetable oil 2 1/2 Tablespoon
All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) , finely chopped

1. For the enchilada sauce mix the oil, flour and garlic in a 1-quart microwave safe casserole dish and microwave at full power for 1 minute, or until hot.

2. Now add the stock, chilli powder, cumin, oregano and salt and microwave at full power for 6 minutes, or until the sauce is thick, stirring it every 2 minutes, keep it aside for later use.


3. Heat the oil in microwave at full power for 5 minutes by putting oil in a 7-8 inch round microwave safe bowl.

4. Take out the bowl and dip the tortillas in this oil till they sizzle and become soft on both sides (approximately 30 seconds for each side) using a pair of tongs.

5. Keep it on a paper towel and prepare all the tortillas similarly placing paper towels in between, as it will absorb all the extra oil from the tortillas.

7. Take a microwave safe plate (or browning tray), dip the tortillas in the sauce with the help of tongs and place it on the plate.

8. On the lower end of the tortilla put ¼ cup shredded beef, 2 tablespoons green onion and 2 olives and roll to enclose the filling.

9. Prepare all the tortillas similarly, placing them in a row.

10. Put the cheddar and Monterey jack cheese on top and microwave at full power for 4 minutes or until the cheese has melted.


11. On a tray prepare the garnish with the remaining olives.
