King Ranch casserole recipe I cooked

Kicked Up King Ranch Casserole:

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp. of oil for browning chicken pieces
  • Season salt, garlic powder, or Mrs. Dash
  • 1 pkg. tortilla chips
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of Rotel Chili Fixins tomatoes
  • 2 cups of Colby Jack or Mexican style shredded cheese


Cut chicken into one-inch cubes.

Season chicken with your favorite seasoned salt, garlic powder, cumin, and/or Mrs. Dash.

Heat oil in a skillet and add the chicken. Stir fry until done. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Add soups and Rotel to the chicken. Stir well. (I only had 1 can of cream of chicken, so added about 3/4 cup milk, a little at a time, and mixed it in.)

Gently stir in about half the bag of tortilla chips. (I only used close to half a bag on the whole dish, but you can add as much as you’d like.)

Transfer chicken mixture to a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish.

Top with one more cup of tortilla chips. (I just scrunched up some in my hands and added how much I wanted. Doubt it was a whole cup.)

Sprinkle with shredded cheese. (I didn’t use near as much cheese as it called for.)

Cook in 350 degrees oven for 30 minutes.

That’s it! And then once it’s cooked you’re all ready to eat. Bring the family in. Call the kids and grandkids. There’s a big casserole for everyone to dig into!

After I made this I made some fudge. It’s setting up in the refrigerator right now. I guess I’ll go see if it’s ready to taste!

  3. I just made King Ranch casserole last Sunday. I absolutely love it. HEB makes in house tortillas and when I am in the store and I am enjoying the aroma of freshly baked corn tortillas, King Ranch casserole is all I can think of. Thanks for posting this so that those who have never enjoyed this yummy casserole can now enjoy it too!

  4. Yum! I want to just stick my fork into the monitor and grab a bite! I love King Ranch casserole, I love the little bite that the Rotel gives it. I'll be making this after Christmas when I have leftover turkey.

  5. That sounds delicious! I love King Ranch Chicken but my husband doesn't eat anything with "wet" chicken. I make recipes like that when he's out of town. 🙂
