This recipe marries tater tots and nacho fixings into one tray of cheesy goodness. Smother in cheese, spicy jalapenos, onions, and more cheese.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 1(32-ounce) bag frozen tater tots
- 2cups shredded pepper jack cheese
- 1 ½cups al pastor meat (or seasoned ground beef )
- 2to 3 jalapeños (sliced)
- ¼cup red onion (diced)

Step 1Gather the ingredients for the tots.
Step 2Spread the tater tots over an aluminum-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 425 F oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Turn halfway through baking to make sure they are crispy on all sides.
Step 3Gather the ingredients for the chipotle queso.
Step 4While the tots are baking, heat the queso in a small crock pot or in the microwave until smooth and completely melted. Stir the queso frequently until it has melted.
Step 5Layer the pepper jack cheese over the crispy tots and place the pan back in the oven until the cheese has melted and is browned slightly.
Step 6Heat up your taco or al pastor meat if needed. Spread the meat over the totchos.
Step 7Top with some of the chipotle queso, onions, jalapeños, scallions, and more pepper jack if you want them extra cheesy. Serve immediately.
