Progress: New Roads, Schools and Businesses

  • Anticipation is building for the opening of new Leaman Junior High and Churchill Fulshear High School campuses that are projected to open for the 2016-17 school year. These will be located at the intersection of FM 1093 and Bois d’ Arc Lane.
  • A new four-lane road called Fulshear Trace is being constructed to serve as a north/south connector extending FM 359 through downtown Fulshear, and as the third entrance to Fulbrook at Fulshear Creek. Meanwhile it will temporarily intersect FM 1093 at Syms Street.
  • The Gayle Bowen team also welcomes downtown Fulshear’s newest eatery: Center Court Pizza & Brew and gift shop: Freckles Stationary & Gifts.

Recipe - From the Kitchen of Linda K. Beaver

King Ranch Chicken

  • ¼ c. margarine (or butter)
  • 1 med. green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 med. onion, chopped
  • 1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup (I vary this recipe by using 2 cans of the cream of chicken, versus the mushroom soup)
  • 1 can (10 oz) Extra Hot or Milder Rotel diced tomatoes and green chili (I prefer Extra Hot)
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 12 corn tortillas, torn into bite-sized pieces (I end up using more than this, about 18)
  • 2 c. (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

In a large saucepan, cook peppers and onion in melted margarine (or butter) until tender, about 5 minutes. Add soup(s), Rotel and chicken, stirring until well blended. In a 13x9x2 inch baking pan, alternately layer tortillas, soup mixture and then cheese, repeating for 3 layers, ending with cheese. Bake 40 minutes or until hot and bubbling in 325 degree oven. Serves 8.

Serve with a salad and pass the pitcher of margaritas!
