I just had to give this a try since I hadn't ever heard of using tater tots in Nachos before :) It was fabulous though and especially with Nacho Dip over top in place of salsa. I also used Homemade Taco Seasoning since I don't use store brought brands anymore. We all loved it! Our company was very pleased! Thanks for sharing this unique recipe!
What a fabulous idea!! I simply adore Nachos and love trying loads of variations. These were so great, they disappeared quickly! Loved all the toppings and it made a nice change to normal chips having the tater tots there.
This was very easy to prepare and went over well with everyone! Thanks for sharing.
