This sounds really good. It's completely different from the cheesey one I make (also without the cream of soup) so it will go nicely in my collection of ways to eat tater-tots.

If needed drain off fat
Add 2 packages of Chili seasoning and 2 cans of rotel (10oz) cook until most of the moisture has evaporated.
Add 1 10oz package of frozen corn.
Turn off cooktop.

Remove dish from the oven and cover with the beef mixture.
Return to oven for 20 minutes. Top with one can of enchilada sauce and 2 cups of shredded cheese. (I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend)
Return to oven until the cheese is slightly browned

Thank you so much for posting. JoAnn L.

Yum--I'm thinking of doing this with ground lamb and garden potatoes made into tater tots as done by Cooks' Country:

I grew up getting a lot of foods with canned soup. Now I try to limit my intake of processed foods. Since I travel for work it is hard but when I have a choice I avoid / limit them.

I couldn't see the recipe without signing up. They offered a 14 day free trial, but wanted my financial info.

I Googled and found this, which claims to be from Cook's Country:

Looks like a lot of work.

Because they contain soy and I try to only eat organic potatoes. Potatoes are one of "The Dirty Dozen". (I'm not saying there is anything wrong with soy, but I'm not supposed to eat soy unless it's fermented.)
