Mexican Casserole Recipe...

I'm so excited to hear some of my friends have tried the fried rice recipe! I thought I'd share some Tex Mex favorites...

KING RANCH CHICKEN
We have LONG been fans of King Ranch Chicken... I have fond memories of it being served at camp when I was a kiddo... it was always my favorite dinner at camp. I have several friends from south Texas and we all make it differently (some use flour tortillas, some use noodles, some use tortilla chips and I use flour tortillas)...

2 chicken breasts (I use rotesserie chicken from the supermarket)
1 can rotel (we don't like it chunky so I blend it for a second in the blender)
1 can cream of cheddar soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
4 flour tortillas
1 cup of mexican cheese mix
2 ounces of velveeta if you have it on hand

Mix together rotel, cheddar soup, chicken soup, 1/2 c mexican cheese and shredded velveeta
Shred chicken breasts into small pieces
Tear tortillas into small pieces

Mix all together in a casserole dish and cover with the other 1/2 c of mexican cheese

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350... serves 4.

King Ranch Beef
1 pound of ground beef
Taco seasoning
1 can rotel (we don't like it chunky so I blend it for a second in the blender)
1 can cream of cheddar soup
4 flour tortillas
1 cup of mexican cheese mix
2 ounces of velveeta if you have it on hand

Brown beef with taco seasoning (don't use too much... it ended up pretty spicy)
Stir together rotel, cheddar soup, 1/2 c mexican cheese and velveeta
Tear tortillas into small pieces
Stir everything together and cover with other 1/2 c of mexican cheese

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes... serves 4.

Both are GREAT with Megathin tortilla chips...

See, we can't buy cheddar soup here. Argh! I'll have to melt in some cheese 'cause I've gotta try this.
