Best King Ranch Ever

Rated as 4.41 out of 5 Stars

"A family staple meal that has been in the monthly rotation for several years now and is still asked for quite often. This is great either served with refried beans and chips as a Mexican dish or with corn and steamed green beans as a casserole."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix chicken, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, diced tomatoes with green chiles and juice, chicken broth, onion, and canned green chiles together in a bowl, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place 1/3 of the tortilla strips in a layer into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Repeat layers twice more; sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese on top of the casserole.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown and casserole is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. If casserole is still slightly runny, let stand 5 to 10 minutes until firm.

Easy, delicious, made a couple small changes due to lack of ingredients in pantry -- but came out great. Served with Frito Scoops on the side.

This was VERY good... in fact before I could get a chance to plate everyone's dinner, my hungry husband grabbed a plate and I got a thumbs up. Now... the only critique I have is that it should ...
