I’m sure you’ve seen Tater Tot casseroles before and probably have even made them yourself. This was my first attempt. I decided to give mine a Mexican flair using taco seasoning, peppers and queso. Hello Mexican Tater Tot Casserole!

The bottom layer is a mixture of spicy ground beef, peppers and onions. It tastes like you would expect – the filling for a taco. Then I topped it with an entire jar of queso.

Queso is basically melted cheese sauce with chiles. Look for it in the chip aisle with the tortilla chips and salsa.
