  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl; season lightly with salt.

  • Mix pulled pork and barbeque sauce together in a bowl until pork is evenly coated.

  • Whisk sour cream and smoked paprika together in a small bowl.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until a paste forms, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in milk until no lumps remain. Cook and stir until sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in Cheddar cheese until melted. Season sauce with salt and pepper.

  • Drizzle Cheddar cheese sauce over potato nuggets. Cover with pulled pork mixture and dollops of sour cream. Top with pinto beans, roasted peppers, green onion, and thyme.

Cook's Note:

Substitute roasted pimentos for the red bell peppers if preferred.

Delicious! I didn't use tater tots I made my own home fries instead and they were perfect with the white cheese sauce. I seasoned the pinto beans separately before adding to the bowl and heated them up -- add some garlic salt cumin and pepper. I made a sweet pulled pork today specifically for this dish but I can see how this would be also perfect for leftovers if you were using pulled pork for another dish. Really super fun dish and with guests it's perfect to have the guests build their own. Read More

These were good. I assembled them differently for a more visual appeal but left the ingredients the same. Try roasting your own red peppers. It's easy and makes a world of difference. Read More

A very different combination but the overall flavor with everything together was decent. I did canned chili bean instead of pinto and also black beans. I used green peppers instead of red and thought they tasted just fine. Read More
