A great New Jersey comfort food
There is nothing new about getting creative with tater-tots. The idea of combining potatoes with bacon and cheese is also a well-established yummy combination.
We thought if we added a little twist with jalapeños and use tater tots instead regular fries we might have an irresistible combination. And we do!
You'll need a regular-size bag of frozen tater tots, cheddar/jack cheese, jalapeños, bacon pieces & sour cream.
Bake the tater tots on a full-size cookie sheet two minutes shy of the package instruction.
Transfer the tots to a deeper baking dish.
Add jarred bacon pieces or use freshly cooked crumbled bacon.
Toss in two large-sized diced jalapeño peppers.
Top with a bag of melty cheddar/jack shredded cheese.
Mix together well and carefully as to not break up the tater tots.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
Scoop out a large spoonful or with a spatula and top with a dollop of sour cream. YUM!
