I'm originally from Texas, (a Texas Democrat who loves Molly Ivins and Jim Hightower and despises Bush as only a Texas Democrat can) and these are two old Texas recipes. 
 
 

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

1      large onion, chopped
1      green pepper, chopped
2      cups, chopped cooked chicken breasts
1      10 oz. can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1      10 oz can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1      10 oz. can Rotel tomatoes/green chile (I use mild but use hot if you like)
1      tsp. chili powder
1/2   tsp. pepper
1/4   tsp. garlic powder
12    (6") corn tortillas
a bit of olive oil to cover bottom of skillet
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
 
Sauté onion and bell pepper in olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat until tender.
Stir in chicken and next 6 ingredients; remove from heat.
Tear or cut tortillas into 1" strips; layer one third of the tortillas in bottom of a 13X9" baking pan coated with cooking spray or oil. 
Top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture and one third of the cheese. Repeat layers twice.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
