This recipe reminds me of chili cheese fries. (I have reduced the amount of milk after reading the reviews. I hope this helps.)

Oh how we love this casserole! I use Bulk Taco Seasoning Mix for the Taco Seasoning, and add green beans to the mixture (I find if the veggies are mixed in, they are more likely to be eaten than if they're a side dish!) This is deeply satisfying comfort food. Wish I could make it more often...but my arteries protest! Thanks, Nasseh!

I admit that I was skeptical...looking at the ingredients I thought 'that's it?' but I made it, and served it with taco shells and taco 'fixings' i.e. tomato, lettuce, olives and everyone loved it. My youngest, who loves tater tots, thought I tortured the tater tots, but he ended up eating 3 tacos. The potato taste with the taco beef is really good. Will definately make this again.

I used more tater tots than stated but kept the rest the same. Very good and very easy for a weeknight dinner!
