Layer with half of each of the chicken, onions and bell pepper. Sprinkle half the cheese over the top. Repeat to make a second layer with remaining tortillas. broth, chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle the top with the garlic and chili powder. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl, combine soups and pour over casserole. Top with the Ro-tel tomatoes and the remaining cheese.

Posted to the lists by Terri Law on 12/31/96.] Cooks Notes: According to the Dallas Morning News, "the casserole... is a classic Texas party dish, as ubiquitous as chicken-fried steak. It combines tortillas, chilies, cheese, tomatoes and onions with the convenience of canned-soup cooking. No one knows exactly where the dish originated; the real King Ranch in South Texas disavows any connection."
