Study Break Tater Tot Casserole

I call it this because me and my roomates used to make it in college during finals week mostly because it didn't take to much time to make and it reminded us of home cooked comfort food. I got this from the Blue Bell Creamery cookbook, "The Best Recipes in the Country". It is creamy and yummy, great for kids too, along side a vegetable.

Good, quick meal for those lazy days. It was a bit too salty for me so I use reduced sodium soups for 2 of the cans. I also tend to forget to put the cheese on.
