These were really good. I only had about 1/2 bag of tator tots that I needed to use up. I adjusted the other ingredients as needed. Didn't have the peppers, but they were still yummy. Hubby and I snarfed them down in no time.

Good side dish with Mexican food when you're tired of rice and beans. This also would be good just as a snack.
