Tater Tot Tacos

There are all kinds of twists on a good old taco.  There is navajo tacos, flat bread tacos, taco pizza, and taco soup.  Well, today I have another twist for you – tater tot tacos – the ingredients of a taco serve over tater tots instead of in a tortilla.  It’s a playful take on classic tacos that’s perfect for family dinner. This is a fantastic addition to your menu rotation for a meal that’s both delicious and unique.

You’ll love the golden crunchy tater tots as the base for this dish. Then top it with a warm zesty and savory beef mixture. This is made with browned ground beef, a can of petite diced tomatoes, and some taco seasoning.

Then you have the contrast of textures through the different toppings you can place on these. You have shredded cheese, lettuce, slice olives, sour cream, and diced green onion. There is a whole lot of flavor on that plate! My family loved it of course.  This dish reminded me of eating a taco with “mexi fries” at Taco Time.

  7. I pride myself on coming up with ways to use tator tots, and I can’t believe I never thought to just pile on the taco ingredients! So clever. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. thank you SO much! I can’t have corn because I’m nursing my toddler and hes allergic. Normally making taco’s means me making gluten free/corn free flour tortillas but now I can enjoy them easily! I like organic hash brown rounds. Kroger has them.
