How to Make:
Brown up some ground beef and onion in a skillet and then stir in some taco seasoning.
Add the beef to a mixing bowl along with some pinto beans, Mexi-corn, diced green chiles, cream of chicken soup, and taco sauce. Stir to combine and spread into a 9×13 baking dish.
You could also use my pressure cooker pinto beans in this recipe!
Sprinkle cheddar over the casserole and then top with tater tots. Bake for about 45 minutes to get the tots nice and crispy.
- Ground chicken or turkey work well in place of the beef.
- Swap black beans for the pinto beans.
- Use my cream of chicken soup substitute instead of the canned stuff.
Heat up leftovers and spoon into a large tortilla shell, fold like a burrito, and enjoy!
