What You’ll Need to Make This Chili Cheese Tater Tots Recipe
Here’s what you will need:
- One two-pound bag of frozen tater tots
- Two cans chili with or without beans
- Shredded cheese
- Baking sheet
- Foil (optional)
Bake the tater tots according to the directions on the bag. I cooked my tots at 425 degrees for 28 minutes. For easy cleanup, line your pan with some aluminum foil.
Gather up the tots on the pan. Put them in a big pile.
Top the tots with two cans of chili beans. I used one can of Hormel Chili NO Beans and one can of Hormel Chili With Beans. I know the tater tots don’t look too appetizing at this point, but trust me, these chili cheese tater tots are delicious!
Top the chili with cheese. I used a Mexican blend.
Pop the tots back in the hot oven for 7-10 minutes or until the chili is warmed up and the cheese is melted.
