When you think of Tater Tots, what comes to mind? If you are like us it might be breakfast or even late night snacking. But what about the Super Bowl?
Over the last few years, snacking creations have been elevated to a whole new level and that includes the already delicious nachos. Instead of using tortilla chips for nachos, a new trend is to use Tater Tots, such as the seasoned ones that Ore-Ida offers in the frozen section of the grocery store. These Totchos are a next level creation that are perfect for late night snacks and even as a perfect treat during the big game.
Recently, we received a press email about how to elevate our snacking for both late nights and the Super Bowl and one of the ideas was to make Totchos with Ore-Ida. And this led us down a very fascinating recipe rabbit hole. Not only are there so many recipes to choose from online, but each one brings a different flair.
For us, simple is usually the best. And with Ore-Ida Tater Tots at the core of the recipe, simple works.
How we made our own Totchos with Ore-Ida Tater Tots
First up, we baked up our Tater Tots from Ore-Ida until they were crispy and hot. At the same time, we cooked up some ground beef and seasoned it with taco seasoning mix. Once the tater tots were cooked up, we seasoned them with a dash of Sazon and some Adobo before layering them with the seasoned ground beef.
Once the beef was in place, we needed to get our cheese over the based of the totchos. We started with a queso dip that we drizzled over the top. Then we topped that with shredded cheese before putting them back in the oven for 5 minutes. With the cheese all melted and gooey, it was time to top with dollops of sour cream.
We also had salsa on the side that just took our totchos to the next level. Honestly, the only thing we might do differently next time is to add some shredded lettuce and fresh cut tomatoes to give it a hint of freshness.
There are so many ways to elevate tater tots, including making your very own customized totchos!
