One Casserole To Rule Them All. The name suggests a pretty tall order, however, you won't be disappointed when you take your first bite. Layer upon layer of cheese, chicken and corn tortillas may not seem like much, but this casserole is anything but ordinary.

You won't believe how much flavor is packed into this unassuming casserole. And let's just say, if you're a fan of cheese, this casserole is loaded with it! The chicken marinates in a variety of spices beforehand making it a stand out ingredient, and there's the perfect bit of crunch that comes from the corn tortillas and corn chips layered throughout.

This casserole is perfect for any casual dinner and will delight at parties and potlucks. Enjoy your reign as king whenever you choose to make this recipe

Is the chicken pre-cooked in this recipe as it doesn't say??

@bgclaus 4229971 - great question! I believe it is pre-cooked chicken, but we will double check with our Test Kitchen experts and get back to you :) Thanks! Jenny, Editor of RecipeLion.com

This would make the most flavorful chunky party dips ever for the holidays...minus the tortillas and corn chips. I'm betting you can probably put everything together into a crock pot and let it cook all day, then grab your favorite tortilla chips or corn chip scoops and dip away. Can you imagine the aroma lingering in your home from this deliciousness? Yum!!!

Um yes please! I'm hungry just looking at this.

Like Sandi C, below, I was also drawn by the name hahaha. We live in a rural area in the west of South Africa and I have never seen cans of cheese soup so we left that out. The rest of really very tasty and the crunch of the corn chips works adds a nice note.

I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings reference. The recipe is a nice bonus. :D

Ok, this had me just at the title! What a name for a recipe! It looks yummy and I think I can even make a small side one without meat or with a meat substitute for my daughter who is vegetarian. I love the corn chip idea on the top. I will be trying this one out tomorrow night, I think! I'll have to pick an easy dessert to go with it!

This certainly is a 'cheesy' dish but who doesn't love cheese? What I especially like about this casserole is the crushed corn chips on the top. That would give it a nice crunch. I'm sure the family will love this dish. It's great as a mid-week meal because it's so easy to prepare.

The whole family really enjoyed this chicken and cheese casserole. It is also quite quick and simple to make so can easily be done for an evening meal during the week. The only change I made was to use a fresh chili instead of powder. I baked it for a bit longer to ensure the chicken was properly cooked and at the end browned the dish briefly under the grill. Very nice!

This recipe is a keeper. I love chicken and cheese. Not to mention the corn chips. I would cook the chicken with the onions, peppers and spices instead of just mixing the cooked chicken with them. Cooking it all together will give better flavor. It is a dish for my whole family.
