I am always on the look out for easy, fast recipes. My husband is a very picky eater and WILL NOT eat most vegetables! It excites me when I find a recipe that is easy and that everyone enjoys!
I found this Mexican Tater Tot Casserole recipe while scanning through Pinterest one day. I had to change the recipe just a bit to make sure that my family would eat it, but this has been a hit ever since!

Before I share this recipe, I want to show you 2 of my favorite kitchen tools. They are both from Pampered Chef and are absolutely amazing!
The first tool is the food chopper and it is great for chopping vegetables, cooked meat, and nuts super fast. The second tool is the mix ‘n chop. This tool is great to chop and crumble food. This tool is marvelous at crumbling hamburger and sausage and I’m not sure how I survived without it!
Without further ado, here is the recipe for Mexican Tater Tot Casserole. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do and please comment below to let me know how you and your family like the recipe.
