This recipe was given to me in the early 1980's by a co-worker. I have made it so many times the index cards are discolored and tattered. There are many versions now, but I like this one. Hope you do too!

How to Make King Ranch Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly butter 9x13 casserole dish. Dip tortillas in chicken broth, tear in quarters, and line bottom of casserole with half of package.
  2. Combine soups, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Spoon half of this mixture on tortillas in casserole.
  3. Sprinkle chicken bits on this next, then celery, green pepper and onion. Next sprinkle shredded cheese. REPEAT these layers one more time, starting with tortillas and ending with the cheese. Sprinkle with paprika.
