    I too was skeptical while I was making it, but was pleasantly surprised. This was a tasty recipe. I added tortilla chips instead of tortillas. I don't think the chips added anything and will leave them out next time. I also added a can of Mexicorn and used a rotisserie chicken. - 5/29/11

    A little more watery than I was expecting. Next time I will use tortilla chips or harden the corn tortillas before I put them into the recipe. I used flour this time around and they were a soggy mess when I pulled the dish out of the oven. Still yummy and makes great leftovers. - 1/25/11

    This was one of the first recipes I tried on SP and it was GREAT! It's got me using a lot more of the recipes on here. I was craving for it all week but it sounded more like a Sunday dinner so I made it on Sunday and left it to bakw while I got some chores done after church. I was very impressed! - 5/2/08

    This was excellent. I will definitely be making again! I used more cheese on top, but the calorie count remained reasonable. And hubby loved it, too. - 6/8/12

    A Family Fav!! Named for the south Texas famous "King Ranch!" I have made it several times w/ lots of variations, my mom always used tortilla chips (stale ones work the best). We use Rotel tomatoes (drained), & we like red bell pepper. We serve it over rice, often w/ guacamole. - 11/14/11

    This was very good and easy to make. I didn't have a bell pepper so I used a pablano instead. I used a can of fire-roasted tomatoes. It turned out great! - 9/14/11

    First of all, this is named for the legendary King (not King's) Ranch, based here in Texas, one of the largest, if not the largest ranch in the world. That being said, this is a fabulous recipe, one of my long-time favorites. - 4/10/10

    SO good! I was pleasantly surprised, as I was making it I very skeptical. But my husband & I both loved it! Not sure why it's called King Ranch Chicken... pretty confused about that. Maybe like the brand King Ranch? Who knows! - 2/18/10

    Delicious. I omitted the green pepper and used Southwestern Style tomatoes with green chili and jalapenos and this was fantastic. - 6/29/08

  • In re to the King's Ranch Chicken Casserole, especially for RNC, LOVE, AMBER and BETH. This is not the original recipe -- have no idea where this one came from. I have had the original one since around 1970. This name is not even right. As some of you said -- King Ranch is the correct name. - 9/15/14

  • I am a vegetarian and I am always looking for healthy meat choices for the family. This looked easy enough so I thought I'd try. NOBODY in the family liked it. I ended up throwing it out because nobody would even eat it. :( I followed the recipe to a "T." - 1/6/14

  • This was excellent. We had fresh canned tomatoes (made by my FiL) and a jar of sliced jalapenos so I used a mixture of that instead of the canned, but it worked out well (albeit very spicy, my fault :)). This works REALLY well with rice. - 12/5/07
