My family loves tater tot casserole but honestly I'm so sick of the usual kind. Tried this and they said this is their new favorite. I used a really mild enchilada sauce since my youngest would be eating it but the grownups even loved it.

I cooked this for my family for dinner. Its was AMAZING! I did change some things up though. I pre-cooked my tater tots so i know they wouldnt be cold. I put cheese on top of tater tots too and added green olives and green onions on top just as well. I only cooked it for 15 to 20 mins on 425. My kids loved it!

Bake as directed by your particular tater tots. I would be hard to say what tots you have purchased but a good guess would be 450 degrees for 20-30 minutes

I would like to make this , but it does not tell you what temperature to turn the oven on to, or how long to cook it. Could you please let me know.Thank You.
