When a new week begins, a new meal-planning strategy begins. What’s for dinner this week? Will the kids eat it? How much time does it take to cook? All of these questions go into the weekly meal-planning routine. If you’re looking for a recipe that is kid-friendly and takes less than 15 minutes to assemble, you’ll want to add this cheesy tater tot casserole to this week’s meal-planning calendar.
Start by mixing browned ground beef, cream of chicken soup, and diced tomatoes in the slow cooker crock. Then arrange tater tots on top. The kids will have a lot of fun helping with this part of the process.
After the last of the tater tots is placed on top, cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 3 hours. Remove the slow cooker lid and add plenty of cheese on top. Cook for another 30 minutes until the cheese is ooey, gooey and melted and you’re ready to serve. That’s all there is to it. Just a few simple steps before this comfort-food casserole makes its way to your table.
This easy, cheesy casserole is sure to get a thumbs up from everyone at your dinner table - kids and adults alike. If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s tater tots. They’re delicious no matter how they’re served.
Serve this casserole for an easy, stick-to-your-bones dinner during the wintertime or make it your go-to recipe for the kids’ birthday parties or neighborhood potlucks this summer. It’s made with ingredients you likely already have on hand and cooks in the slow cooker so you can set it and forget it. Low maintenance and no-fail. What more could you ask for?
