10 flour Tortillas

1 (2.25 oz) can of sliced black olives
2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
sour cream

Puree vegetable mixure in a blender with 1 cup tomato juice.

Pour into pan, and whisk in flour, chili powder, and salt. Cook till slightly thickened. Stir in 1 cup of remainding tomato juice, enchilada sauce, and cinnamon. bring to low boil. simmer 15 min

Next dip the Tortillas in the red sauce and fill with cheese and pre cooked chicken squares. roll up and repeat until pan is full.
