Mexican Tater Topped Casserole

Mexican Tater Topped Casserole

I don’t make a lot of casseroles usually, mostly because it makes too much food and we don’t like to eat leftovers, but I do make exceptions.

This is one of them! So just think of this for a moment.

Tater tots, cheese, and a ground beef mixture. It screams Mexican food! And it’s impossible not to love it.

It’s true this casserole is irresistible, it’s true this casserole is mouth watering, and it’s true this casserole is cheesy, spicy, and makes you want to beg for more.

That’s all I have to say here, the rest I leave up to you.

    Hi Jo,
    Kids are back from University and daughter picked this one for me to make! Quick question, what size casserole dish to use 9X9 or 9X13? Made the meat mixture today and will assemble and bake it off tomorrow :)
