Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the tater tots on a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake the tater tots according to the package’s directions until crispy and golden brown.

Step 2

While the tater tots are baking, prepare the chorizo. In a skillet over medium heat, add the chorizo and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink. 

Step 3

Add the diced onions to the skillet and cook until softened, about 4 minutes.

Step 4

Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, less than 1 minute.

Step 5

Add the rinsed and drained beans, smoked paprika, salt and pepper to the skillet. Stirring until well combined and warmed through. Turn off the heat and set it aside.

Step 6

Bake the totchos. Lower the heat to 400°F. Remove the tater tots from the oven and evenly spread the chorizo bean mixture.

Step 7

Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the chorizo bean mixture. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. 

Step 8

Assemble the totchos. Evenly spread chopped green onions, diced tomatoes, diced avocados, pickled jalapeños, cilantro and dollops of sour cream. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!


Notes:

  1. Totchos are perfect for any type of leftover taco meat.
