King Ranch Casserole | Anchors Aweigh


King Ranch Casserole

If you're from Texas, you've likely had some version of this tasty goodness. King Ranch Casserole is just southern comfort food. It can be made so many different ways, but I love this recipe because it's quick and easy. This dish also freezes really well! Make it for a potluck or just a weeknight meal where you need to please the husband. It's a one dish meal and it's topped with cheese. Really, what more could we all ask for?


1 lb of chicken, cooked and shredded
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 oz) can cream of chicken soup
1 (10 oz) can Rotel
1 Tbsp chili powder
10-12 corn tortillas, roughly torn into about 1 inch pieces
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish.
2.  In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, bell pepper, soups, Rotel, and chili powder.
3. In your baking dish, layer half of your torn tortillas followed by half your chicken mixture followed by a layer of cheese. Repeat once more.
4. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake another 10 minutes or until bubbly.

So I've never had this, but confession I'm not a native Texan. However I've been here for about 6 years. It looks so delicious! Pinning this!
