This was a great dinner for a cooler day. I attempted to "fix" the issue of the tots getting soggy by following part of another tot recipe. It had you bake the tots partially (to get them to start being crispy) then layer them on the bottom with the fixings on top. Our tots were basically mush by the end, but it still tasted great! Next time I'll still pre-bake the tots a bit (about 10 minutes at 400F), but put them on top, not the bottom. I also think this would taste great with some diced fresh tomatoes and some diced green pepper (to add in more veggies). It might be interesting to try it with beans too! We'll definitely make this again!
I added more ingredients but still followed the recipe.great i dea to a warm cloudy evening
this was good my hubby liked it better then me...
Normally I make recipes as is the first time but I played around with this one. First I omitted the black olives and green chilies. I added chopped onion and used one regular can of chili and one 'hot' can. I didn't want to freeze one so I cooked it in a 13x9 pan. I baked it at 425, uncovered, for 25 minutes and my tots were nice and crispy. I think at some point I might throw in some diced hot dogs for a chili dog flavor.
This was delicious. I had to uncover it and cook for another 20 minutes. Leftovers are really good too.
This was really good. I had second thoughts about it because my daughter doesn't particularly love chili but we both liked it a lot. The tator tots didn't really get done so I ended up baking it uncovered the last 10 minutes and still had to put it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up. Probly will just bake it uncovered the entire time next time and see if that works better.
Amazing meal! I work full time daily & part time at night, don't have much time to prepare meals. This was quick and easy, tasted awesome. Will make again.
