My mother-in-law found this recipe in the Dallas Morning News and we had it over Christmas! It makes alot and is really filling! Great w/ a salad and a glass of wine!
I'd recommend cutting it in 1/2, and for just Brandon and I, I might cut it in 1/4!
You can also make it lower in fat/calories by using light or fat-free sour cream, cheese and not as much butter.
King Ranch Casserole:
4-5 cups tortilla chips, crushed
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. chicken flavored, soup based seasoning- can be powdered or cubed
4 chicken breasts, already cooked and chopped
2 10oz. jars of alfredo sauce (if there's a light version of this- get it!)
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups pico
12 oz. or grated mont.-jack cheese
Melt butter and mix w/ chicken seasoning. Mix everything together in a large bowl. Transfer to a greased (I use pam!) 9x13 pan. Cook @ 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
Easily serves 8-10 people
