Tater Tot Nachos

I’m not sure I’m ever going to make traditional nachos (with tortilla chips) again. I’m addicted to tater tots, and making them into nachos pretty much has me in love with them even more. I didn’t even think that was possible.Get crazy with the toppings. Just make sure you crisp up the taters before adding the toppings, and don’t drown them in sauces that make the taters soggy (booo!). I used Crispy Crowns instead of tater tots when I made these nacho. I think Crispy Crowns get crisper, and they’re flat, so they have a nice little spot for the toppings to settle on.

Tater Tot Nachos

There’s a restaurant just north of Indianapolis, in Westfield, named the Local Eatery & Pub that makes totally outstanding tater tots. They are major league crunchy on the outside, and smooth and potatoey inside. I can’t recommend them enough!

Also try my tater tot casserole.
