1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless raw chicken breasts

28 ounces can Red Enchilada Sauce or El Pato Brand

Ingredients to add at the end:

Step 4: Shred the chicken breasts using two forks.

Step 5: Add in the strip-cut tortillas and stir until well combined.

Step 6: Add in ½ cup of cheese and olives. Stir until well combined.

Step 7: Press the mixture gently to flatten it out.

Step 9: Cover and cook for another 40-60 minutes on low heat.

You can use flour tortillas but the texture may be a little soggy.

I advise you to use corn tortillas instead.
