Fiesta Tater Tot® Casserole

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"We invented this recipe one night after one of us wanted Tater Tot® casserole for supper, while the other wanted Mexican...It's SUPER easy and SUPER yummy! Baking the Tater Tots® before layering may be unnecessary but we wanted to make sure they had a chance to crisp up. The whole family LOVED this dish! Hope you do too!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground beef, green onion, and 1/2 package taco seasoning. Cook and stir mixture until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  3. Combine remaining taco seasoning mix with tomato soup, nacho cheese soup, and milk in a saucepan; heat soup mixture until just boiling.
  4. Layer potato nuggets in the prepared casserole dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until potato nuggets begin to crisp, about 10 minutes.
  6. Spoon ground beef mixture over potato nuggets; pour in soup mixture.
  7. Bake until soup mixture is bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle casserole with Mexican cheese blend; bake until cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.

Very tasty but incredibly salty as directed. I'd need to find lower sodium ingredients before making it again.

My kids and husband loved it. The only thing I did differently was used enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce because it's what I had on hand. Will make again!!!

Hubby really liked. I didn't have nacho cheese soup on hand, so I used a cheddar cheese soup that I had instead. I also added a can of chopped green chilis and black olives. Pretty good, may ...

I kept all the ingredients it called for as listed, with the exception of adding a cup of frozen sweet corn to the hamburger/tomato soup mixture as it was simmering. Other than that, the one ma...

This casserole was pretty good. I made it exactly as the recipe called for. I just felt like it was lacking something in flavor, I think next time I will add more taco seasoning.

Family loved this! I used two packs of low sodium taco seasoning rather than one to add flavor. Will def make again.

Awesome. I didnt season the meat seperatly (didnt see the point). I just poured the whole package of taco seasoning into the soup mix (plus a little more) Only used about 3/4 of the bag of ta...

Love this recipe! So good. I use a white onion instead of the green onion as my grocery store always seems out of them.
