Tasty Tatchos

Sitting in a restaurant years ago, I ordered tater tot nachos on a whim and I’ve never looked back. These crispy taters and cheese had me at hello. The best thing about this easy recipe,  it can be customized for your taste buds.

Like ’em spicier, add some jalapenos or pepper jack cheese.

Not into beef, use shredded pork or chicken.

Want to really mix it up, use tater tots made from sweet potatoes.

The totsibilies are endless!

Crispy Tater Tots are loaded with cheese & bacon and baked until hot and bubbly just can’t be beat.

How to Make Loaded Tater Tot Nachos

Step 1

First, bake your tater tot according to the package instructions.

Step 2

While tater tots bake, cook ground beef with taco seasoning until beef is browned and cooked totally through. Drain off fat and set aside.

Step 3

Once your tots are done baking, remove from oven. Keep oven on. Top with cooked beef, cooked bacon, and cheese. Place back in the oven until cheese is bubbly and melted. Remove from oven and top with sour cream, salsa, olives, green onions, avocado, and cilantro or other desired toppings.

There is no doubt, you can go crazy with your garnishes, too. Sour cream, avocado or guacamole, tomatoes, green onion, olives, cilantro, salsa or hot sauce all work well.

There is just something magical about crispy potatoes smothered in cheese and delicious toppings 🙂 Dreamy!
