Tonight's Supper ...

was courtesy of Mrs. A from Charmin's Thoughts, She suggested serving her famous King Ranch Chicken.
Since I've been feeling a little "uninspired" in the kitchen lately, I've decided that I will cook whatever meal(s) is/are suggested to me through this "Menu Idea Invitation". I am really hoping that you guys will suggest something for tomorrow evening - otherwise my family may go to bed hungry! ... hee! hee!
I do have Mrs. A's King Ranch Chicken recipe, however, I did not have all the ingredients for her "secret" family recipe on hand. So, I will provide you, my dear readers, with the version I prepared this evening. It was served with a spinach, pineapple and Mandarin orange salad.
King Ranch Chicken
2 c. cooked chicken, shredded
3 Roma tomatoes, cored
1 4oz. can diced green chilies
2 oz. sour cream
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
6 corn tortillas, cut into strips
Using a food processor, chop and combine tomatoes and green chilies. Transfer to a medium bowl, add shredded chicken, reconstituted cream soup, sour cream, and 1/2 c. shredded cheese; mix well. In a greased 8 x 8 baking pan spread a small amount of chicken mixture. Top with a layer of corn tortilla pieces. Repeat layers of chicken mixture and corn tortillas ending with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes or until hot, bubbly and cheese begins to brown.
Serves 6
Thank you Mrs. A! My family and our home school group enjoyed supper and went to bed with full bellies this evening.


  1. You are very welcome. I sure wish you would have used my recipe. At least everyone was full to the brim. One thing I can say about you for sure is that you can make anything out of ANYTHING!!! (sourcream?????)

    I love you BFF!
    Mrs. A

  2. My family also wishes I'd had all the ingredients on hand to prepare YOUR recipe too. They always tell me how much better your King Ranch Chicken is.
    Yes, I added sourcream (to enrich the flavor of the cheese and add a little more creaminess to the casserole), ... my goal this week is to use only what I have on hand so improvisation may turn out to be very important skill.

    Love you too,


Thank you for taking time to read my blog and leave a comment. I try my best to respond to each one. God Bless You, Mrs.B
