~ 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.

1 bag(s)
32 ounce ore ida tater tots - thawed
3 tsp
cajun seasoning - i use tony chachere's creole seasoning
1 tsp
heaping - each pepper & dried rosemary
1 tsp
each garlic powder & onion powder
1/2 - 3/4 tsp
cayenne - i used 3/4 tsp - we like hot
6 Tbsp
butter + 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


1Preheat oven to 425 degree F.

Mix spices.
2Add butter and oil to a skillet or saucepan, heat until butter is melted into oil, stir to combine. Remove from burner and stir in spices. Thoroughly combine.
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.
4Bake until desired crispness, about 25 - 30 minutes.

Can season with salt when taken from oven. I found they were salty enough.
5I served with spicy ranch dressing. Yum!
