I've heard these referred to as "Totchos" (which is sort of hard to say), but whatever they are called they are superbly delicious. I grew up in the Midwest so I'm very familiar with Tater Tots, but using them to make nachos transforms them into something that will surely be a crowd-pleasing hit!

Technique Tip: Place sour cream mixture into a plastic baggie and snip one corner off the bag for a pretty drizzling effect.

Swap Option: Tater Tots are basically a vessel for anything you want to top them with: Experiment with your favorite cheeses, proteins and veggies.


    • 1 bag frozen Tater Tots (or your favorite brand)
    • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1 cup crumbled cooked bacon (about 6 slices)
    • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
    • 1/4 cup diced green onions
    • 1 avocado, diced
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon chipotle hot sauce, or more to taste
    • 1/2 lime, juiced


1. Prepare Tater Tots as directed on package.

2. Remove from oven and top with cheese and crumbled bacon. Place back in oven and bake for another 5 minutes or so, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

3. Top nachos with tomatoes, green onions and avocado.

4. In a bowl, whisk together sour cream, hot sauce and lime juice. Spoon the mixture over the top of the nachos and serve.
