Mexican Tater Tot Casserole

Spicy, hearty and tasty. This Mexican Tater Tot Casserole is pure comfort food! A lovely twist on the classic casserole, this Mexican Tater Tot Casserole is a mixture of taco meat, beans, corn, and cheese topped with tater tots and enchilada sauce. The family will love this one dish meal, with a spicy kick! If you’re after a casserole fix but craving something a little different, whip up this Mexican-inspired Tater Tot Casserole. It’s an addictive mix between taco and casserole.

With spicy taco beef, tomatoes, corn, cheese, and of course, a layer of crispy browned tater tots on top, this casserole is always a hit! One of the best parts of this Casserole recipe is actually the toppings! You can load the finished casserole with all kinds of goodies; chopped tomatoes, avocados, sour cream, and cilantro. The veggies and cilantro give the casserole such a great fresh flavor. This is a great freezer meal to make for a large family. You can freeze this Mexican Tater Tot Casserole. You can either prepare it ahead of time and freezer to eat later, or just freeze any leftovers if you don’t plan to eat them in the next few days.
