  1. Coat 2 large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray, and arrange 2 tortillas on each sheet. Bake at 350°F for about 6 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  2. While the tortillas are baking, place the chicken, salsa, and chili powder in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  3. Remove the tortillas from the oven, and sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese over each tortilla. Top each tortilla with a quarter of the chicken mixture, 1 tablespoon of olives, and 1 tablespoon of scallions. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the cheese.
  4. Return the tortillas to the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crisp. While the tortillas are baking, place the sour cream in a small serving bowl. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges, and arrange the wedges on a serving platter accompanied by the sour cream. Serve hot.
