Playing How To Make Taco-Tots By Rachael

A taco seasoning blend gets sprinkled over store-bought tater tots for a spiced-up snack.

Rach likes to serve these with her Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburgers with Jalapeño Special Sauce.

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder, a scant palmful
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper or hot paprika
  • About 2 teaspoons salt, to taste
  • One 32-ounce bag extra-crispy tater-tots, Ore-Ida preferred brand
  • Ketchup or mild or spicy taco sauce, to serve

Arrange tots on nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet, sprinkle evenly with seasoning blend and roast to crispy, tossing or turning tots once, 25-30 minutes.
