    This is my favorite variation on the king Ranch casserole. So much easier with the corn chips. I add a can of mushrooms, black beans and a shot of hot sauce.

    First of all, thanks for this wonderful recipe. It is a first time for us and we are seniors. Here’s my Canadian twist. First, I’m a smoke hound and we always have plenty of smoked chicken etc in the freezer. That was the first substitution. Rotel tomatoes are very hard to find here so I used a local brand (20 oz) which contains finely diced tomatoes, bell peppers and celery. I then adjusted the spices a bit and decided to make lasagna, (we are not big fans of tortillas or corn chips.) On second thought, I made a half sized lasagna and left the remaining sauce to be used over egg noodles. My wife who is very fussy/picky went absolutely wild. I also used a combo of cheddar, Jack and Mozza. Winner, winner – Chicken dinner! This is surely where that phrase came from!
