Totcholada casserole recipe

Frozen tater tots don’t have to be just a side dish anymore. In fact, you can get super creative with dinner like I did in this recipe. I used tater tots and baked them until crispy golden brown. I then covered them in a red enchilada sauce, topped them with cheese and returned them to the oven for a several minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Serve up this super simple dish with tangy sour cream, onions and spicy corn salsa.
