5-Ingredient Loaded Totchos

On their own, tater tots already fall squarely into comfort-food territory. But bake them like a tray of nachos and dress them up like a loaded baked potato, with plenty of sharp cheddar, crumbles of salty bacon, and generous dollops of sour cream, and be prepared to enter a whole new level of comfort-food bliss. Whether you’re binging The Bachelor with friends, watching the game, or settling into weeknight dinner with your little ones, this is how to win over your crowd.

Totchos are simply tater tots that are treated like nachos. They’re baked in the oven (preferably for a few extra minutes for maximum crispiness!), loaded with cheese and bacon, returned to the oven, then topped with the best loaded potato fixins, including sour cream and scallions.

Get a head start by cooking the bacon ahead of time, or slide it in the oven when you put the tater tots in. The oven temp for the tots will be a little higher than our go-to method for bacon, so plan to cut a few minutes off the bacon’s cook time. It’s best to start checking at about the 10-minute mark, then every couple of minutes after that until it’s crispy.

When the totchos are ready, serve them directly from the sheet pan, or use a wide spatula to slide the whole thing onto a platter.

  • 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
