I've found a few recipes online for Mexi-Fries, but few made them exactly like our local Taco Time restaurant. So I tried this recipe, and it's better than most other recipes I found online. It makes a quick and easy side dish to go with tacos or other simple Mexican dishes, or whenever you want to spruce up plain Tater Tots.
