Four Pepper King Ranch Casserole Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil and add the onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, poblano pepper, cayenne, chipotle, cumin and garlic. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are just beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add the chicken broth and tomatoes to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 to 6 minutes until reduced slightly then remove from the heat and stir in the cream, sour cream and cilantro. Stir in the chicken. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with oil, then place half of the tortilla halves on the bottom of the pan. Top with half of the chicken and vegetable mixture, then layer on 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Repeat, layering the tortillas, chicken mixture and cheese. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes, until hot and bubbling.
