We tried this last night,and loved it !!! I love it because you can put just about anything in it and its still tasty. We used cream of chicken soup in ours only change was the size of the can instead of two 15 ounce cans I substituted 1 26 ounce family size can and it was just enough soup. I never thought about putting the tots on top for more crunch...maybe next time!!!
I've made this for so many people and everyone loves it. It's cheap and easy, freezes well and warms up great. I always use a can of French cut green beans and add a can of corn and a package of frozen peas (gotta sneak those veggies in somewhere!) and then I mix all the ingredients together and cover with the tots on top. I like to lightly sprinkle the tots with seasoning salt and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper to give it a kick. Someone else told me they make this with French fried onions on top instead of the tots, but you'd have to rename it!
This is the kind of recipe I go to when I am tired or busy and don't feel like cooking. It is easy and my family loves it! I use two varieties of "cream of" soup- usually chicken and mushroom. I also mix the meat and soup together. I do put my tater tots on top because we like them crispy. Very good recipe, we enjoy this one a lot!
