Best King Ranch Ever Recipe


 Recipe by razzchick

“A family staple meal that has been in the monthly rotation for several years now and is still asked for quite often. This is great either served with refried beans and chips as a Mexican dish or with corn and steamed green beans as a casserole.”

Makes                                  servings

  • 6                             cooked chicken breasts, shredded

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can                             cream of chicken soup

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can                             cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (10 ounce) can                             diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)

  • 1/2 cup                             chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup                             chopped onion

  • 1 (4 ounce) can                             chopped green chiles

  • 6                             corn tortillas, torn into strips – or more as needed

  • 2 cups                             shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or more to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix chicken, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, diced tomatoes with green chiles and juice, chicken broth, onion, and canned green chiles together in a bowl, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place 1/3 of the tortilla strips in a layer into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish; top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Repeat layers twice more; sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese on top of the casserole.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown and casserole is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. If casserole is still slightly runny, let stand 5 to 10 minutes until firm.
