    Nice! I didnt know what to expect, other than it sounded good, quite like a Mexican chicken lasagna only much faster :) I will definitely make this again, a lovely casserole dish made in no time at all!! Thanks for sharing, made for QUEST, TexMex!

    I've been making King Ranch Casserole for years and everyone loves it. This was a nice version that was great comfort food. I didn't use the mushrooms only because I didn't have any on hand. Thanks for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2.

    I knew going into this that my husband isn't a fan of casseroles, etc..... , but sometimes I just can't resist. I had never tried a King Ranch Casserole and decided this was the time. I really liked it. It's definitely comfort food. I love the corn tortilla flavor and texture alongside the creamy chicken mixture. Thank you! Made for CQ 2 - Tex-Mex

    I made this a few days ago and it was so easy! I had never eaten this before and really enjoyed it. Definitely will be a good winter food also. I changed a few things to the recipe for personal preference. Such as, omitting the mushrooms, adding corn & ranch style beans, adding a pinch of taco seasoning & cayenne pepper, and replacing corn with flour tortillas. We totally loved it! Thanks for the recipe.

    Made this tonight, really good. The next time I think that I will add some corn and green peppers, but otherwise, they were licking the bowls. Thanks for the recipe.
