Chili Tater Tot Casserole
Family Tested & Approved
lean ground beef or ground turkey
shredded mexican blend cheese
hormel chili with or without beans
bag ore ida extra crunchy tater tots
In a 10 inch cast iron skillet, brown the ground beef and ground turkey together. Season as you like.
I used a 13 x 9 oval Pyrex casserole dish.
Put the meat in the casserole dish.
Pour the can of chili over the meats and blend together, pat down into the dish.
Sprinkle the grated cheese liberally over the meat-chili mix, create a NICE layer of cheese.
Pour the Tater Tots out of the bag onto the top off the cheese and even them out so they heat evenly, sprinkle a little seasoning over the top if you like.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 to 40 minute, until tater tot are heated and cheese is melted.
Scoop onto platters and serve.
We have made taco salad using this as well...Shred lettuce and put on your plate top with the casserole and add your extra topping: sour cream, ripe olives, salsa etc.....its great.
