First, it is really hard to take a good picture of this casserole...of most casseroles actually! Second, this is one of those comfort food dishes that sticks to your ribs and fills you up. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry too! Tater Tot Casserole is just one of those yummy meals that I make when the weather starts to get cold and when I know I will want leftovers for awhile. Kurt loves this meal too and he is always satisfied when I make it. I should add that this is not a healthy dinner but it is quick, easy, and totally YUM!

1 bag frozen tater tots
1 lb. ground beef
16 oz. reduced fat sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Add ins (I use 1 can of corn and 2 small cans of mushrooms)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour bag of tater tots on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
2. Brown the ground beef. While beef is browning, mix the sour cream, chicken soup, any add-ins, and 1 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese in a large bowl. When beef is cooked add it to the mixture and mix well.
3. Pour beef mixture over tater tots and spread out evenly. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheddar on top.
4. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and cheese is melted.
