1/4 tsp. chili powder
1 T. butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
1 (1.25 oz.) package mild taco seasoning mix
1 bunch green onions, chopped, divided
1 cup water

1/2 tsp. onion powder

Stir in lime juice, onion and garlic powders; simmer additional ten minutes. Stir one cup of soup mixture into skilled with chicken mixture. Spread remaining soup mixture on the bottom of a 9x13" baking dish. Fill each tortilla with chicken mixture; sprinkle cheddar cheese over chicken filling before folding tortillas, reserving half of the shredded cheese for topping the enchiladas. Fold tortillas over the filling and place seam-side down in prepared pan. Pour enchilada sauce evenly over the enchiladas; cover with remaining 1 1 /2 cups cheddar; sprinkle reserved chopped green onions and sliced olives on top of cheese. Bake in 350 oven until filling is heated through and cheese is melted and bubbling, about 25 minutes.
