Tater Tot Casserole

Muna Escobar Recipe

By Muna Escobar supermomma5


My kids love this. The more tater tots and cheese I put in it the better.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This was fantastic!! I used ground turkey and both cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese piled on top. Super satisfying, it tasted just like something Grandma used to make. (Kind of like chicken dumplings, but not as heavy.)

This is a very kid-friendly dish and I will bet they will be asking for seconds!!! If there is any left at the end of the meal, though, it heats up well for leftovers the next day.


1 lb
ground beef or turkey, browned, seasoned & drained
2-3 c
of canned (drained) or frozen vegetable of choice: green beans, corn, peas or mixed vegetables (optional)
3 lb
frozen tater tots
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
1 can(s)
cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 c
8-12 oz
cheddar cheese, shredded

My girls liked it ok... I add veggies to make it a full meal. I'll probably try it again. Thank you Muna!

I think I am going to give in and try this Tater Tot Casserole. I have seen it everywhere, but have been hesitant because it's Tater Tots. But what the heck, the idea sounds good and hopefully it will be something my picky daughter will eat.

I have made this recipe since the 1980's and it is always a hit. I put in peas or green beans depending on my mood. Either way a great budget meal.

I am making this now. It smells wonderful. I added taco seasonings to the meat as it was browning. Next time I will add veggies and make it a total meal. This time we will just have a salad with it and call it good.

The taco seasonings sound good. Maybe adding 1 can of tomatoes with green chilies to the meat would go good with the taco seasonings. Yummy!

Yummy..........the green chilies sounds really good. I was also thinking of adding green onions, and sour cream to it. That is why I love this one, you can add and play with it so many ways. :)

Muna I'm making this now. I had some left-over ground beef but not enough to make a full recipe so I cut it in half and only used 1 can of creamed soup. Also, I fried the meat with onions and garlic, salt and pepper. Smells good, can't wait to try it!

How about adding a can of rotel? And maybe a can (or 2) of corn? Now we're talking!

I have been making a version of this recipe for years. I brown the ground beef but add onions and a chopped garlic clove. Put in baking dish add soup then 1 layer of velveeta on top of that then the tater tots and bake. Has been a favorite forever.
