I made these tonight, and we really liked them! I only used 1/2 a bag of Tater Tots, and didn't use the garlic powder or Italian seasoning. Instead, I used 1 teaspoon of chili seasoning, and 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning. Baked them for 18 minutes, and served with Taco Biscuit Bake. Thanks for sharing :-)

Tater tots can get boring after a while. This is a good way to wake up the flavor. Good recipe.

A nice little side dish! I found that the tater tots were too oily about halfway thru the cook time, so I drained off the grease and wiped the cookie sheet down with a paper towel. Then I continued to cook another 10 minutes and they crisped up wonderfully. Thx Vicky!
