Totchos (Tater Tot Nachos)

I honestly just wanted to make these because they're so fun to say. Totchos!!!

Tater tot nachos are all over the place right now, so I had to whip up my own version. Basically just nachos made with tater tots instead of chips, they are the ultimate party dish to enjoy with friends.

(Not gonna lie--this is also VERY good drunk/hungover food.)

Note that unlike normal nachos, you definitely need a fork to dig into this messy deliciousness (definitely a good problem to have).

I kept this version super simple with black beans, green chilies, a few veggies, plus the uber important cheese-guac-sour cream, but also feel free to think of these as a blank canvas to have fun with! Add shredded cooked chicken, ground beef cooked with taco seasoning, sliced grilled steak, or even roasted veggies.

Oooh...chorizo would be so good, too! (Chorizo is always so good.)

Layer all the goodness up, baked until melty, then serve immediately.

Have fun!
