Great on cool fall/winter nights. Easy to prepare. Husband likes it. DONT know why anyone would throw-up this dinner.

I moved from Texas to Indiana 8 years ago and one dish I sorely miss is King Ranch Chicken. It was a favorite of mine at Country Corner Cafe in Shiner. This recipe is almost identical to what they served. It is SO good and extremely easy!! Whoever "threw up in their mouth a little" must not like the dish in general because it is really good. If I can get my kids to eat it, it's definitely a keeper!!

This casserole delicious!! The only thing I change on it is the corn tortillas, I actually use Nacho Cheese Doritos and it tasted great!

This is a favorite of mine. I use all cream of chicken soup and 2 cans of Ro-tel. I am a single person and I cut it into 8 servings and It freezes well. I serve it with a garden salad or a steamed vegetable.
