Téxas King Ranch Chicken Casserole – If you aré from Téxas you havé had this dish for suré! It is so warm and filling! Gréat for a cold wintér day liké it is héré today in Colorado! Théré aré many variations to this dish but all involvé chickén, chéésé and tortillas!

How can you go wrong with that combo! So Mamas just go to thé kitchén and whip this puppy up for suppér! Thé kids won’t fight all événing cuz théir bélliés will bé so full théy will pass out on thé couch!

Ingrédiénts :

  • 1 wholé chickén cookéd (débonéd and cut into médium piécés)
  • 1 can of chickén broth
  • 1/2 cup of choppéd frésh cilantro
  • 12 corn tortillas (cut into quartérs)
  • 1 cup of sour créam
  • 2 1/2 cups of shréddéd chéddar chéésé
  • 1 can of Rotél Tomatoés
  • 2 cans of créam of chickén soup

Instructions :

  1. In a bowl add Rotél, soups, sour créam, cilantro, and 1 cup of chéésé. Mix wéll. Slowly add in 1/2 can of thé broth. Chéck consisténcy. It nééds to bé a thickér than a pancaké battér but not too thick. Add moré broth if it sééms to thick. I usually énd up using thé majority of thé can. I can always add moré chéésé if I gét it to thin. In a 12 x 10 or so cassérolé dish ladlé about 1/2 cup of thé saucé into thé dish and spréad it around. Put oné layér of tortillas on top of thé saucé.
  2. Néxt placé cut up chickén on top of thé tortillas. Don’t usé all of thé chickén as wé will répéat this layér again. Ladlé somé of thé saucé on top of thé chickén. Continué with this layéring; tortillas, chickén, and saucé until all ingrédiénts aré uséd up. So you havé éndéd with saucé on top. Také thé rémaindér of thé chéésé and dump on top of thé cassérolé!
  3. Baké uncovéréd at 350 dégréés for about 45 minutés or until it browns and bubblés. Maké suré thé middlé is hot too! I sérvé this with a gréén salad, chips and salsa! Guacamolé and pico aré éxcéllént with this as wéll! This sérvés 6-10 dépénding on thé sérving sizé. Wé aré a family of 5 and wé always havé plénty léft for bréakfast! Yés I said bréakfast! yum! If you would préfér turkéy instéad of chickén that can bé éasily substitutéd with thé samé gréat tasté.
  4. And for a spéédy vérsion you can pick up a rotissérié chickén and go to town or just throw about 4 médium chickén bréasts on thé grill instéad of boiling a wholé chickén. Any of thésé vérsions will bé délicious!
