  1. Start with the enchilada sauce: in a medium saucepan, add 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil and sauté garlic. Add chipotle chile, chili powder, cumin, broth, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

  5. Top with enchilada sauce (you might not use all) and remaining cheese and bake until hot and the cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro and plain greek yogurt (optional).
