For a quick meal, you can fry a tortilla in a bit of olive oil till crispy, brush with enchilada sauce, and lay it flat.
Place some cooked shredded chicken or cooked ground beef on the tortilla and sprinkle it with chopped onions and sliced black olives, jalapenos, cilantro, tomato.  You’ve got yourself a tostada!

If you prefer quesadillas, take two tortillas like a sandwich and fill them with your favorite ingredients.  Place the tortilla sandwich in a hot cast iron skillet with olive oil and quick fry on both sides!  Olé!
