    Tater Tots are more of an American thing (than Canadian), and what the heck is “Mexican cheese”?. Whilst researching Mexican-type casseroles, I came across this one. Not sure if adding Tater Tots to a casserole is YOUR original idea, but if it is, all I can say is that it is BEYOND brilliant!! Insane!! I hope it is so I can praise you again. I will be making this on the weekend regardless.
