Then take out your corn tortillas. You can decide how many you’d like to use. Cut them into strips. Then add them to the crockpot with the chicken. The mix. The trick is not to add the tortillas all at once. Add some, mix, then repeat the process until you have mixed all the necessary number of tortilla strips.

Then add in the cheddar cheese slowly and combine every time you sprinkle some in the mixture. Save a cup of cheese for the toppings.

Put in the olives and mix. Once the ingredients are combined thoroughly, add the rest of the cheese as toppings. Then spread the remainder of the olives on top.
