If tater tots and nachos had a baby, it would be this beautiful mess of a dinner. Maybe pair with a michelada? I feel like a low brow yet south of the border-ish drink fits right in. How about you?

  • 1 bag frozen tater tots
  • 2 cups meat browned
  • ½ cup corn thawed
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ cup cilantro crema optional
  • ¼ cup pico de gallo optional


  • Preheat over to 400°F. Bake the tots for 18 minutes.
  • Top the tots with meat, corn, beans, pepper, and cheese. Bake for 4 more minutes.
  • Top with avocado, cilantro crema, and pico de gallo, or additional toppings.


  • Use browned hamburger meat, leftover rotisserie chicken, or some of the Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken for this dish. Or skip it and just use cheese and veggies.


  • Skip the cheese and the cilantro creme. Load up on avocado after the totchos come out of the oven!


  • Watch the tater tots. Some popular brands are naturally gluten-free, but not all.
