Great recipe.. I grew up eating King Ranch Casserole in my childhood in the 60s. The original recipe used turkey since they grew such huge flocks on the King Ranch

This is a family favorite! Very easy to put together, and oh, so delicious. We are cheese lovers, so add a little more cheese than called for. Love the idea of adding some black olives to top....will try that next time.

The best casserole ever! Creamy, cheesy with a bit of a kick from the Rotel. Super easy, too. I usually bake large roaster chicken for dinner and a couple of days later use the left over chicken in the casserole. Everyone in my family absolutley loves it. It's a winter staple in our home.

I only had 11 tortillas so I used some crushed tortillas chips to make up for the loss. Also I added a can of black beans to make up for lack of chicken. I used cut up chicken tenderloin since I didnt have any baked chicken deboned. This was fabulous. Will be in my meal rotation from now on.
