What are tater totchos? They're a layered nacho dish but instead of chips, they have tater tots ... and bacon ... and cheese. Enough said.
Things are getting pretty darn good around here.
Spring is right around the corner and the Irish are taking over my kitchen. Or, well, my Irish brother is taking over my kitchen. This is kind of a good thing, but mostly bad. The bad is that all he eats is beef. So much beef. It is a little tiring.
The good is that he once lived in Ireland for a semester, meaning he loves corned beef and potatoes in any way, shape or form. Since tater tots are one of his favorite forms of the potato, and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought an Irish twist on classic nachos would be perfect!
And really, what's not to love about tater tots covered in cheese and bacon?
Gather up your ingredients. I love using Cascadian Farm Spud Puppies taters. I swear they are the best out there … and I kind of love the name too.
Fry up some bacon.
Sauté some onions and peppers, and if black beans are your thing, throw those in too!
Grab those crispy Spud Puppies!
Spread the tots in an even layer and then layer on the pepper mixture. Now add some cheese.
Repeat with another layer of each.
Now pop them into the oven to melt the cheese.
Meanwhile, mash the avocados and gather up any other toppings you like.
Grab the nachos from the oven and toss on the crumbled bacon!
Serve 'em up and grab a beer!
