"My mother would make this for me as a child, and now I make it for my family. My husband loves it, and it's very easy to make. It's cheesy, and the chile peppers give it a little kick."

This recipe was great! As another Texan reviewer mentioned, it is almost identical to King Ranch casserole, if you make it with plain corn tortilla chips, which is what I had on hand. I also made a few other modifications; Added about 1.5 cups of coursely chopped white onion (wish I hadnt, red or green would have been better). I poached the chicken in a T of olive oil, 4 small cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and mesquite seasoning, adding about half a can of tomatoes with green chile and juice. The flavor from that was good. I followed another reviewer's suggestion of slicing the processed cheese and I think I won't do that again - shredding would have gotten a more even consistency. I added a layer of finely crushed ships over that and topped it with shredded mixed cheese (monterrey jack and colby) - this made a great topping. Topped it with black pepper and parsley. My boyfriend had 3 servings - he loved it!


I used salsa instead of the can of tomatoes and chili's, I also substituted lime tortilla chips. It tasted exactially like "Applebee's" tequilla lime chicken.


This was okay. I didn't care for all the soup. Maybe a big jar of salsa instead for a change of pace.
