  1. Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking dish; set aside.
  2. For sauce: In medium saucepan, mix undrained tomatoes, water, chopped onion, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce (if desired), cilantro, cumin, chili powder and half of the salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool for 5 minutes. Place in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until browned and no longer pink. Remove from heat; drain off fat. Stir in salsa, sour cream, lime zest and the remaining salt.
  4. To assemble enchiladas, spoon 1/2 cup sauce into bottom of prepared baking dish. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla near edge; roll up. Place tortillas, seam sides down, in prepared baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over all.
  5. Cover and bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until heated through. Sprinkle with olives and green onions.
