Southwest Tater Tot Casserole and This Week's Chicken Feed

So, when you fall off the horse (not blogging, cooking or crafting), you get right back on -- with, SW Tater Tot Casserole - ha ha.  

This is my secret weapon.  Leftover taco meat.  It is not often that I make ground meat tacos, but, when I do, I make enough for tater tot casserole later in the week.  I don't use one of those packets though.  I just add a little garlic powder, salt and chili powder to taste.  For a little kick, add some red pepper flakes.

It is really simple and good.  You need, taco meat, a can of green chili's, a large can of cream of mushroom soup, tater tots, and I like Colby jack cheese.

Mix all together in a large bowl.  I just put a large handful of cheese in the mixture and mix it up good.

Put it in a greased casserole dish and top with more cheese.

Cover with foil and bake in a 350 oven for about an hour.  Check the center because it takes a little time to bake through all those frozen tater tots.

I forgot to take a picture of my Mandarin Orange salad -- sorry.  Any salad would do.
