These tots are easy to assemble and served with a chipotle mayo dip.
We have all had bacon-wrapped scallops, and even jalapenos, but I had never had a bacon-wrapped tater tot before making these. Let me tell you, it was a revelation!
Unlike some of the other bacon-wrapped goodies I mentioned, these tots are for EVERYONE. Who doesn’t like bacon and potatoes?! They're also perfectly pop-able, and elevate the humble tot to fancy party snack level.
Serve them with this simple chipotle dip and your friends will be so impressed (and you might be embarrassed by how easy the recipe is).
Making these tots is insanely simple. Take the frozen tots out of the bag, cut the strips of bacon in half and wrap the bacon around them.
Bake at 450ºF for about 25 minutes, depending on how thick your bacon is.
Put all of the dip ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Some toothpicks and a nice plate are the final touches that elevate this simple app.
The creamy spicy dip is the perfect compliment for these salty, crispy snacks.
