OXFORD, Miss. — When I think of Texas, I think about ranches and the sprawling Hill Country. This week, we are sharing a recipe for King Ranch Chicken Soup. It’s a unique spin on what is usually a casserole. Hotty Toddy, and let’s beat A&M!

King Ranch Chicken Soup


  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1.5 boxes chicken broth
  • Meat from 1 rotisserie chicken
  • one can of Rotel tomatoes
  • one envelope of taco seasoning mix
  • One fresh jalapeño chopped with seeds removed
  • one can of black beans, drained
  • 2 cups of cheese (I like Kraft triple cheddar or Mexican with added Philadelphia cream cheese in the mix.


Melt the butter. Add the garlic and sauté for around a minute. Then add the flour, and whisk constantly to make a light roux. Sauce should be smooth and thick.

Add all ingredients aside from cheese.

Just before serving, add the cheese. Stir til melted, and serve with extra cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
