We have finally had a couple of snow days here in Ohio which means it’s time to snuggle in for comfort food and movie nights. Tater tots are a family favorite around here so given the opportunity to create these Loaded Totchos to share with you I jumped at the chance.
Have you heard of Totchos? They are a combination of two popular snack foods – nachos and tater tots. These ORE-IDA® TATER TOTS® Potatoes are topped with melted KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese, OSCAR MAYER Bacon, a sour cream and Ranch dressing sauce and fresh chives. They are truly tasty.
Movie nights happen around here at least once a week. Sometimes we make pizza but sometimes I haven’t been home long enough to make pizza dough happen from scratch. So it’s essential I have easy to prepare snacks like these Totchos on hand from Sam’s Club. The kids think these are great! And I must admit, I do too.
To make these Loaded Totchos a meal, I serve them with a simple green salad and some orange slices. It’s fun food that we can eat together while we watch a movie. We eat dinner as a family most every night around the dinner table. So eating in front of a movie once a week or so is a treat we all enjoy. Be sure and visit KRAFT HEINZ for even more fun family recipe inspiration of your own movie or game night at home!
Loaded "Totchos" use tater tots as a base for a loaded nacho-type experience. These tots are topped with plenty of bacon and cheese with a Ranch and sour cream sauce to dip.
