** For those who are not aware, I am out of town, my Daddy passed away on Sunday at 5:04 p.m. There will be no "new" recipes for a few days after this one. But I promise to keep posting and sharing as it is therapeutic for me**
After working in the yard and wanting something homey to eat, it got me to thinking about a tater tot casserole I had seen numerous times on Pinterest but forgot to pin it or see who made it. So I thought, hmm, I can make one. How hard can it be?
So I went in the kitchen, grabbed up a bunch of ingredients and threw this together. We enjoyed it. Not something I would make often as I think it was probably loaded with calories.
Opps, sorry I said the 'c' word. Bad Dawn.
So here ya go...
Doubly Cheesy Tater-tot Casserole
1 bag tater tots
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 TBSP homemade taco seasoning mix
1/2 jar of Monterrey jack queso
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 bag Colby shredded cheese
Cook the ground beef, onion and taco seasoning together. When it is done, mix in the queso and soup mix. No water or milk. Spray a 13 x 9 pan and cover the bottom with tater tots. Pour the meat/cheese mix on top and cover that with the remaining tots. Now sprinkle the shredded cheese over. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
