I’m a total Midwesterner, you guys. It comes out most in my food choices.

Ranch dressing: goes on everything!

Corn: for every meal!

Casseroles: every night of the week!

I just can’t help myself. It’s how I was raised, okay? Except for the casserole thing. My mama doesn’t like casseroles (and she likes everyone. Oh, Bieber. Get outta my head.), so we actually never ate them growing up. I think that maybe I’m making up for lost time here.

This King Ranch Casserole is pure comfort food!

I mean, who wouldn’t want casseroles every day? They’re always so full of good stuff, like cheese. And cheese. More cheese. Extra cheese. All the cheese.

If you’ve never had a king ranch chicken casserole, it’s a Mexican casserole that is so freakin’ easy to put together. It’s full of good stuff like Ro*Tel and corn tortillas and shredded chicken. And, of course, all that cheese I mentioned.

This recipe does use a couple cans of cream of chicken soup and I know some of you are not fond of that stuff. No worries! Just swap in my cream of chicken soup substitute and you’re good to go!

Hope you guys love this one as much as we do. If you’re looking for more casseroles, check out my sloppy joe casserole or my taco lasagna.

This Cuban sandwich recipe is one of my favorite ways to use pork shoulder! You can roast the pork just for these sandwiches, or you can just use leftover pulled pork!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • 2 bell peppers any color, diced
  • 20 ounces cream of chicken soup 2 cans
  • 10 ounce can Ro*Tel tomatoes with chiles
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the butter to a medium skillet over medium heat and melt. Stir in the diced onion and peppers and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add onions and peppers to a medium bowl, along with the cream of chicken soup, Ro*Tel tomatoes, water, and taco seasoning. Stir well to combine.
  4. Cut the tortillas into small squares.
  5. Spread 1/2 cup of the soup mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Top with 1/2 of the chicken, followed by 1/3 of the tortillas, and 1/3 of the cheese.  Top with 1/2 of the remaining soup mixture.
  6. Repeat the layers - the top layer will consist of just tortillas, soup, and cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  8. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top and serve.
