King Ranch Chicken Casserole
March 24, 2014

This is a pretty good version of a truly ubiquitous dish of Texas. Sort of an "inside joke"--the King Ranch is one of the biggest ranches in the world. They raise CATTLE, not CHICKENS! So it really has nothing to do with the King Ranch, per se. Here's a tip. Don't worry about finding or using fresh corn tortillas. I always have those on hand, but King Ranch Casserole is best made with tortilla chips. Yep--Tostitos, Santitos, even Doritos! They will soften up in the sauce & provide a good corn flavor. I've never, ever used actual tortillas.
