King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Ingredients:

8- 8" corn tortillas, divided
Chicken broth
2 tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped

1- 14oz can cream of chicken soup

Preheat oven to 350F. In a 10x14 inch greased casserole oven dish, layer half the tortillas dipped in hot chicken broth, just long enough to soften. In a skillet, sauté onion & bell pepper in butter.

Repeat layers: tortillas, mixture & cheese ending by pouring the tomato-green chilies over the top.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly. This casserole may be frozen and reheated! If freezing, be sure to wrap appropriately, or use an appropriate sized glass dish with lid.
