How to Make King Ranch Chicken Casserole


  • 1How to make it
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Saute onion, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper in
    hot oil until warmed through, about 2 minutes.
    Combine onion-pepper mixture, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, diced tomatoes,
    chicken broth, sour cream, cumin, ancho chile powder, oregano, and chipotle chile powder together
    in a large bowl and stir until sauce is well-combined.
    Spread a few tablespoons of the sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 the
    chicken over the sauce. Spread about half the sauce over the chicken and top with 1/3 the cheese.
    Spread a layer of tortillas over the cheese. Spread remaining 1/2 the chicken over the tortillas,
    and top with almost all of the remaining sauce, reserving 1/2 cup sauce. Top with 1/3 the cheese,
    remaining tortillas, the reserved 1/2 cup sauce, and remaining 1/3 cheese.
    Bake casserole in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 40 minutes. Increase the oven
    temperature to broil. Broil the casserole until top is golden, 2 to 3 minutes more
