King Ranch Chicken Casserole (Oamc)

Recipe by LILTEXQT

This version reminds me of the one served at Mama's Cafe in San Antonio, TX. YUM! You can add some heat by using Hot Picante Sauce and/or Hot Rotel. Now living in Iowa, this reminds me of home. Enjoy!

Very good recipe. I used my own canned salsa (Wonderful Salsa from this site). I used low fat sour cream and due to a personal preference, I used flour tortillas. I also added 2 cups of frozen corn (thawed). Thank you for sharing your recipe. This was made for Spring PAC 2008. I will also submit a picture in the next week.
