Introducing Tater Tot nachos. You read right: Tater Tot nachos. Chips are great and all, but crunchy potatoes are the perfect base for nacho toppings like spicy chorizo and melty cheese. Add your favorite salsa, a drizzle of sour cream, some green onions and cilantro and you’ve officially made yourself the most epic nachos ever. The fact that they come together in just 30 minutes? Well, that’s just a bonus.

6 servings

1 bag Tater Tots

2 teaspoons oil

½ red onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

½ pound fresh chorizo sausage

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

1½ cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

4 green onions, thinly sliced

4 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Sour cream

Salsa verde

1. Preheat the oven to 425°.

2. Spread the Tater Tots on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake until they begin to turn golden, 10 to 12 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, warm the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.

4. Crumble the sausage into the pan and sauté until cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.

5. Remove the Tater Tots from the oven and pour the sausage mixture evenly on top. Cover with the cheddar and Monterey Jack and return to the oven to bake until the cheese is melted, 7 to 9 minutes.

6. Remove the nachos from the oven and top with green onion, cilantro, sour cream and salsa. Serve immediately.
