A twist on the King Ranch Chicken Casserole. Truth be told, not quite as healthy as its counterpart, but my family agrees it tastes better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat, onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  2. Mix soups, milk, water, picante sauce and green chilies (Note:Some people like less than the whole can, it's ok to add less.) to make a soup mixture.
  3. Layer tortillas, meat, soup mixture and cheese twice in casserole.
  4. Cover with foil and bake @ 350 degrees for 20 to 45 minutes. (I do about 40) Take off foil for the last 5 minutes.
  5. Let cool, and eat :].

I would recomend leaving out the one cup of water. I used a small can of green chilis and medium picante sauce. It was plenty hot. I would also use shredded cheddar cheese. The velveeta left a velveety taste.
