2 lbs beef (or ground turkey)
1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can pitted black olives
1 onion
1 jar enchilada sauce (trader joe's)
15-20 tortillas (corn preferable)
taco seasonings (either a packet or a mix of chile powder/flakes, cumin, salt/pepper, garlic, onion, paprika, oregano)

Chop onions, mix taco seasonings, sautee in medium heat with beef until cooked through
Put thin layer of enchilada sauce in bottom of pan, put cooked beef and an ounce or two of cheddar in each tortilla, roll and place seam-side down, top with lots of leftover cheddar and sliced black olives and leftover enchilada sauce
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees

To make a meal . . .
- add a side dish of spanish rice (using a mix is legit but you can also just add salsa, onion and broth to white rice)
- make guacamole - 2 avocados, 1 jalapeno, 1/2 c diced onion, 2 limes' juice, 3 cloves garlic, 1 roma tomato, dash of salt . . . dice and mix all ingredients
- serve with sour cream
- add black beans and chips and make nachos - top layer of chips in baking dish with beans, leftover beef filling, cheese, olives, bake for about 10 min at around 400 degrees.  Top with salsa, guac, and sour cream for super nachos.
