Taco Tater Tot Casserole

Tater Tot Taco Casserole: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

In this dish I decided to take my family's love of tater tot casserole and add some Mexican flavors to it. It turned out delicious. Even my husband who is not a fan of beans, let alone the traditional taco enjoyed this casserole.
