MY version of King Ranch Chicken

King Ranch Chicken is always a cheap, delicious way to clean out my pantry. It always comes out differently, and it's always a winner.

2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
8 tortillas cut into strips(whatever you like...I'm into the yellow corn tortillas by the Tortilla Factory right now!)
1 Can Cream of Chicken soup
1 Can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 Green Bell Pepper diced up
1 Can rotel (or whatever diced tomatoes you have...for this one I had Hunts diced tomatoes with's just what I had!)
1 Onion
1 small can mushrooms
Shredded cheese!

Preheat oven to 350. Saute the onion and bell pepper with some salt. Added the chicken, soups, rotel, and drained mushrooms. At this point add your cumin and just let it simmer and stir occasionally. In a baking dish place down a layer of your tortilla strips. Next layer with a bit of the soup/chicken mixture, then layer with some cheese. Repeat this until you are out of the soup/chicken mixture. Before you place this in the oven sprinkle with cheese. IF you have some old broken tortilla chips that you are just going to throw away, go ahead and pour these on top! They make a great crust! Pop this in the oven for about 25 min!


  1. Yum! Looks good and I think I have everything to make this tonight! Happy Friday!

  2. I tried a version of that a few months back and so VERY delicious. i'll have to try yours too!!
