Tater Tot Casserole/Hotdish
 
Cover the bottom of a 13 X 9 casserole dish with tater tots. Place in a 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Sweat 1 cup diced onion
Add 1.5 pounds ground beef (I used 93% lean) and brown.
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

Not a hotdish--there's no cream of .... soup in your recipe. Starch+meat+can of cream of something soup = MN hotdish.

No cream of ... soup, doesn't make it tater tot hotdish! It's a casserole!

In the other thread I called it a casserole and you said it was a hotdish.

That's a recipe I really will make because it doesn't have canned soup in it!

Looks delicious! Worth a few more hours at the gym!

I could never forget you. One of the most interesting and fascinating folks I know. I still hear from Ro and Thea every so often. Facebook broke our little group up. I still keep in touch with Nance. Have been to visit her a couple of times. And we talk for hours about twice a month on the phone. I was so glad to have found you here. DC is most fortunate to have you as a member. :angel:

Sounds like a spicy up-side down cottage pie.
