    I have made King Ranch by many Recipes and liked this on the best, I never realized I had a recipe from an old cook book my Mom had and it is almost identical, only 1 difference. The book was from late 60's early 70's. Every time I make this it is a HIT. I for sure think it rates 5 stars or more.

    This casserole is fantastic! I took it to a potluck last weekend and one person ate three helpings. Several folks asked for the recipe and not one bite was left. I will definitely be making it again.

    Great recipe! I always add some roasted garlic and chopped jalapeño. I also use mixed tortillas that are a hybrid between corn and flour and then add crushed Doritos to each layer. My grocery store, HEB, makes great rotisserie chickens so I buy those and use the ENTIRE chicken. I ALWAYS double this recipe because if there are any leftovers, it is great the second day! ENJOY!!

    Used a smaller casserole dish to layer. Also, did the following: water sautéed the onion and bell pepper; used an organic roasted chicken (this gave it additional flavor and saved on prep time) used organic ingredients-Muir Glen tomatoes with green chilies. Variations: you can add fresh spinach or corn with onion and pepper sauté. My family loves this dish!
