Take a tortilla & spread 1 tsp. of enchilada sauce & then put 1/3 cup filling in center of each tortilla & roll it. Place each roll in a baking dish with seam side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Cover the rolls with remaining enchilada sauce, and then sprinkle some cheese for garnish.
Bake the enchiladas for about 35 minutes. Sprinkle some olives, spring onions & serve.

Instead of onions & bell peppers you can add re fried beans for filling the tortillas.
You can add olives & jalapenos inside with beans too.
