King Ranch Chicken

  • 1 can Cream of Chicken
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom
  • I jar cheese whiz
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 3-4 cooked chicken breasts cut up into cubes
  • Tortilla Chips

Cook the first 5 ingredients until smooth and creamy. Lightly spray a casserole dish and layer the following:

Crushed up tortilla chips
Cheddar cheese
Keep layering until out of everything - normally 2 layers if you are using a 9x13 casserole dish.
Cook at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese on tops starts to bubble.

This is a great dish to make ahead of time and take to parties. Extra yummy the next day.
