Chili Cheese Tater Tot Casserole

It&rsquos not 1955 anymore and tater tot casseroles aren&rsquot the big new thing that your mama is making you for dinner. I get it.

But, the thing is, my mama never, not once in her life, made me a tater tot casserole. Or a casserole of any kind. She *gasp* doesn&rsquot like casseroles. Probably I&rsquom adopted.

More suspicious food related things: No one in my immediate family likes chocolate peanut butter desserts besides me. Seriously. It&rsquos like they&rsquore not even American.

So, these are all still big new things to me, regardless of the fact that I literally make some version of a casserole at least twice a week. All that cheese. It&rsquos probably not healthy. At least, I swap in my homemade cream of chicken soup in those recipes instead of the weird gloppy canned stuff!

Anyway, my newest take on a classic hot dish is this Chili Cheese Tater Tot Casserole. All the goodness of a bowl of chili with the added bonus of crispy tots.
