  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread potato nuggets out onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until nuggets are golden brown and crisp, 22 to 24 minutes.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add water and taco seasoning to beef; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid reduces, about 5 minutes.
  4. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange potato nuggets on an oven-proof platter and cover evenly with ground beef; spread Mexican cheese and pepperjack cheese over the top.
  5. Cook potato nuggets under the broiler until cheese melts, 1 to 3 minutes. Whisk sour cream and lime juice together in a bowl. Top potato nuggets with tomatoes, black olives, jalapenos, avocado, sour cream mixture, scallions, and cilantro, respectively.

Not bad, but I would prefer to use traditional chips instead of the tator tots.

I add the meat and cheese and put toppings out for everyone to add to taste. Easy!

It was good, but nothing extraordinary. Fresh tasting and good, just not stand out. It would have been easier to eat and taken less time if I'd just stuck with nachos or tacos. Left me feeling f...

This was underwhelming. I have to agree with the several other reviewers who said they prefer real nacho chips instead of the potatoes. Using potatoes throws the balance of this recipe way of...

We didn't care for the tater tots. With that being said, if we made the exact same recipe using chips, I think it would have been delicious. That's what we plan to do next time.

I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it tasted great. Loved the whole thing.

Oh yes. Yes indeed. Delish.

I skipped the avocado. I just didn't want the texture on my tots. I thought maybe using the taco seasoned meat on a version of "Extreme Tots" would be just as good as Sonics (I miss living in...
