    I’ve been making King Ranch Chicken for more than 20 years. My son who is now 27 says it’s his favorite dish from his childhood. He’s a fireman and asked me for the recipe so he could make it for lunch. I found this recipe to be closest to the one I used to make. I made it and it didn’t disappoint! Use corn tortillas, not chips. It’s even better leftover, after all the flavors have had time to sit.

    Yummy. I love garlic so I added fresh garlic and replaced the butter with 3 Tbsps of olive oil. I plan to make ths again .

    LOVED IT!! Not a large amount of ingredients but loads of flavor! NOTE: just make sure to use Rotel tomatoes - not Rotelle pasta ;-)

    Delicious! Both husband and I loved it! Never heard of this before so I was not sure what it was going to be like at all, especially being my first time using corn tortillas in a casserole (which were amazingly soft and blended right in). I wasn't sure how small to cut them so I diced them in small bite sized pieces! Very easy preparation and a nice comforting weekday meal! Could use a little heat, next time I might add a jalapeño pepper as well. We added Frank's Original and that was a great substitute for our first time! Will definitely make again....soon!
