Fun And Easy Totchos

You are going to LOVE these fun and easy totchos.  They quickly became a favorite of our entire family when I started making them several years back.  They are perfect for after a game or a busy night of homework.  This is such a versatile dish too!  You can substitute any potato or chips in place of the tater tots in this dish.  You can make them as fun and healthy as you like.  I love to add “hidden” veggies such as chopped spinach, cauliflower, or broccoli to this dish and my kids cannot tell the difference.  Once you add the cheese; that really is all they are looking at.  This is the basic totchos that we have most often and love to share with our friends.  I am going to be making a bacon ranch cheeseburger version for an upcoming neighborhood karaoke night we are having.  Get as simple or elaborate as you like, just have fun!
