A New Twist on a Tater Tot Casserole – Taco Tater Tot Casserole

A recipe popped up on my Face Book page Sunday morning and I just had to try it, plus I just happened to have everything on hand for the casserole. It came from a blog called ‘The Cookin Chicks’. It was pretty tastey and really easy to make and it could feed a crowd for not a lot of money.

You could make modifications here are my thoughts: Ground Turkey instead of Beef, Salsa instead of Enchilada sauce. Here’s the recipe have fun with it!

(Taco Tater Tot Casserole Ready For The Oven)


1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 package taco seasoning, or 3 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
1 (16oz) bag frozen corn
1 (4oz) can green chiles, diced/drained
1 (12oz) can black beans, drained
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
1 (16oz) package frozen tater tots
1 (10.5oz) can red enchilada sauce


Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish. Heat a skillet to medium high heat. Add in ground beef/turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat. Add in taco seasoning, frozen corn, green chiles, and beans. Cook until heated through. In a large bowl, combine the meat mixture, 1 cup cheese and tater tots. Mix until combined.
Pour about 1/3 of the enchilada sauce on bottom on 9×13 baking dish. Add in tater tot meat mixture and smooth to flat. Pour remaining enchilada sauce on top and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. During the last few minutes, sprinkle remaining cheese on top of dish and cook until melted. Serve warm!
*If you are a fan of black olives, you can add 1 small can to the mixture to change it up a bit
