Tator Tot Taco Casserole

We’re fans of the Tator Tot Casserole and we’re also big fans of Tacos, so when I came across THIS I had to try it.  IT was delicious!  Thanks allrecipes.com I’m loving a new good casserole.

Tator Tot Taco Casserole

1 lb. ground beef

1 small onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 packet taco seasoning mix

1 (16oz) bag frozen corn

1 (12 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 bell pepper, cut into small pieces

2 cups  shredded Mexican cheese blend

1 package (16 oz) frozen tator tots

1 (12 oz) can enchilada sauce

In a skillet brown the beef.  Add in the taco seasoning, corn, drained beans, onion, garlic, and bell pepper.  Cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occassionaly.  Pour in about half the enchilada suace in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.  Then pour the meat mixture and tator tots over the sauce.  Mix up a bit and pour cheese on top.  Pour remaining sauce over it all.  You can freezer or refrigerate it at this point if you’d like to save it for later.  Otherwise, bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Happy cooking!
