Tater Tots remind me of my childhood. On Friday nights, my dad would bake us kids a batch of Tater Tots, and we would eat them with ketchup and sour cream while we watched movies. They are the perfect snack food — crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They are just so satisfying! So what better way to top a casserole than with Tater Tots?
And this is not just a Tater Tot casserole. This is a taco tater casserole. Ground beef cooked with taco seasoning, cheese, corn, more cheese and a layer of Tater Tots. And did I mention cheese? This is a perfect recipe for a lazy Friday night, after-school snack or even the next big game. After browning your seasoned ground beef, build this casserole layer by delicious layer, finishing with Tater Tots on the top. Bake until the tots are golden brown, and finish with cheese. In the end, you have the most hearty and satisfying taco tater casserole! P.S., writing this recipe just made me so hungry. I think I hear Tater Tots calling my name ...
