Keto King Ranch Chicken

Keto King Ranch Chicken

Chicken lover? I have a good yummy treat for you!

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups chicken, cut up in bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 ounce can chopped green chile
  • 6 ounces tomato salsa
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 16 ounces grated jack cheese
  • 6-7 homemade tortillas

  • How to prepare:
    1. Cut up chicken into bite-sized pieces if using raw. Dice onion and bell pepper.
    2. Remove from pan and set aside. Melt additional 1 Tbs of butter or coconut oil and cook bell pepper and onion on medium-low until soft, about 5 minutes.
    3. Add spices to pan. Mix them well with onions and peppers and cook for approximately 3 minutes, stirring constantly. You want to release the fragrance of the spices and have people wander into the kitchen and ask what smells so delicious. Be careful not to burn them.
    4. Add the cup of broth (I used homemade turkey) and stir it until you’ve loosened up all the pieces of spice on the bottom of the pan.
    5. Add cream, chile, and salsa, mixing well.
    6. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. At the end of 15 minutes, very carefully remove 1 1/2 cups of the hot mixture and put into an emulsion beaker or blender. (PLEASE use caution here!)
    7. Using caution, blend mixture until thickened. If using a stick blender, keep blender in the bottom of the beaker to avoid being burned. Carefully pour the blended mixture back into the pan.
    8. Stir well and then add sour cream.
    9. After mixing the sour cream in well, add meat. Here I am actually using some chicken I cooked and some leftover turkey.
    10. Mix meat into sauce and gather sauce, tortillas, and cheese. Preheat oven to 350o.
    11. In a 9×13 baking dish, begin by layering sauce/meat mixture. Just put enough to wet the bottom of the pan.
    12. Place whole tortillas at the bottom (do not overlap), then tear another tortilla and fit it in around the empty spots.
    13. Ladle half the sauce/meat mixture on top of the tortillas.
    14. Evenly spread 1/2 of the cheese over the sauce/meat mixture.
    15. Repeat for the second layer, layering tortillas, then sauce, and ending with remaining cheese mixture. It’s ready for the oven!
    16. Bake at 350o for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
    17. Serve and enjoy! May be topped with additional sour cream.
