Comfort Food – King Ranch Chicken

22 Jan

Do you have an open bag of tortilla chips in your cupboard? Maybe they are a little stale? Don’t throw them away, make king ranch chicken! We always seem to have an open bag of stale chips in the back of our pantry. This recipe is a great way to use them up and it’s easy to make ahead of time. Our toddler especially loves to crush the chips for me. Maybe pulverize is a better word than crush…

King Ranch Chicken

- 3 cups cooked chicken, cubed or shredded

- 2 green onions chopped

- 1 T chili powder

- 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes

- 2 cans of cream of chicken soup

- crushed corn chips (enough to cover bottom of pan)

- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

- 1/2 cup salsa

In a medium bowl add onion , soup, chili powder, tomatoes and salsa. Mix well.

Spray 9×13 pan with cooking spray and line bottom of pan with crushed chips.

Add the chicken and the sauce in layers (1/2 chicken, 1/2 sauce, and repeat)and top with cheese.

Cover with foil and bake at 350° for 35 min. Remove foil and bake 10 more minutes.

I serve with rice and beans.
