Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add in cream cheese and stir to melt. Stir in green onions, 2 cups shredded cheese, drained black beans, and green chilis. Stir to combine and heat through, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken and black olives and remove from heat. Add in 1 cup of enchilada sauce, stir to combine.
2. Heat tortillas in microwave, a few seconds at a time, so that they are soft and pliable. Spray a 9x13-inch baking side with cooking spray. Spread 1/4 of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of the pan. Spoon 1/4-1/3 cup chicken mixture into the center of a warm tortilla and roll tightly. Place in pan seam side down. Continue with remaining tortillas until pan is full. Pour 1 cup enchilada sauce over the prepared tortillas. Top with remaining 2 cups shredded cheese.
3. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until bubbly and cheese begins to brown, 5-10 minutes more. Cool slightly before serving.
