Taco Tater Casserole


I made this for dinner tonight and it was to die for! I added a can of green chiles to the meat mixture, and put tots on top at the end with the cheese. I broiled it for a few minutes to add a little crunch. We ate it with sour cream and hot sauce. It was sooo yummy. Next time I might add some tortilla chips on top too. What a great find!

Delicious! I used the ten minute enchilada sauce recipe for the enchilada sauce and added extra beans instead of corn only because I hate corn in things. I also grated montery jack and cheddar for the cheese. When putting this together I mixed half of the tater tots into the mixture and put the remaining cheese on top after the sauce and then topped it with the remaining tots so they would be crisp.


1 pound ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning mix

1 (16 ounce) bag frozen Mexican-style corn

1 (12 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 (12 ounce) bag shredded Mexican cheese blend

1 (16 ounce) package frozen tater tots

1 (12 fluid ounce) can enchilada sauce


Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Cook the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, taco seasoning mix, frozen Mexican-style corn, and black beans to the ground beef; cook and stir another 10 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Combine the ground beef mixture in a large bowl with about 3/4 of the Mexican cheese blend and the tater tots; stir to combine.

Pour about 1/3 of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Add the tater tot mixture to the baking dish; lightly pat the mixture down into a solid, even layer. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the tater tot layer.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining Mexican cheese over the casserole and return to oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 minutes more.
