Directions Step-By-Step

1
1
Slightly defrost tator tots to allow toothpick to go through.
2
Hold jalapeno slice around tator tot then wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around and secure together with toothpick.
3
Make as many as you can then deep fat fry them at 375 degrees for about 3-4 minutes or untill brown and crispy looking. ( I think it cooks a little better after they have been frozen together and it's great to keep some frozen for on the spot snack needing)
4
Immediately sprinkle with cheddar cheese (You can microwave a little so the cheese gets melted more) and provide a side of ranch for dipping.
