  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients for the tots.

    Spread 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.

    Gather the ingredients for the chipotle queso.
  4. Step 4

    While 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.
  5. Step 5

    Layer 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.
  6. Step 6

    Heat up your taco or al pastor meat if needed. Spread the meat over the totchos.
  7. Step 7

    Top with some of the chipotle queso, onions, jalapeños, scallions, and more pepper jack if you want them extra cheesy. Serve immediately.
