I found this on the Miserly Mom's website and have cooked many times - my family loves it - especially my 11 year old!

My roommates and I made this last night. We decided it was just ok but could definitely be great with a few changes. We thought the dish would be over the top if the tater tots were crispy. Next time we'll put the salsa con queso over the meat & corn mixture and put the tater tots on top of that, keeping our eyes peeled to make sure they won't burn. I also thought it needed something to brighten up the flavor - maybe some cilantro or Rotel with lime. Thank you for posting. Can't wait to try it again with the changes.
