~ Hotty Tottys ~

Cassie *


If you like food with some kick, you will love these tots. I served with spicy ranch. Everyone loved them. For a party I'll double or triple the recipe. They will be served at my Super Bowl Party. The recipe was shared with my husband, by one of his co - workers. I tweaked it to our liking.

3In a medium sized bowl, pour in about 1/3 of the seasoned oil. Now add about 1/3 of the tater tots and swirl to coat in bowl. I also used a spatula and carefully tossed. Once coated place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tots, until all are coated.

If there's any remaining sauce, drizzle over tots.
