And this is the best when no one can really deny nachos even if they claim to not like it! I don't think this is even possible. Nachos are love!


Here is the simple Tater tot nachos recipe with step by step instructions and the list of ingredients required to prepare them.

To begin with, you will require some Tater tot nachos ( You can get some pre-baked tortilla chips or the ones you can bake at home or that can be fried), some pickled jalapenos or sliced jalapenos, veggie ground round, cherry tomatoes - can prepare some salsa too, cilantro, vegan sour cream, and guacamole ( Really love Avocados ). You can add as many veggies as you like. I have made this recipe with the ones mentioned.


How to make Vegan Tater tot nachos: First of all- you start with baking or frying your tater tots! Now secondly move on to the veggie ground round and heat it on the medium flame. Sprinkle some organic taco seasoning of your choice and add up a little water. This helps in enhancing the taste of the seasoning, cook it until heated up properly and it turns brown.


Once your nachos are properly baked/fried, take them out in a casserole dish to start preparing the nachos. Once you take them out, spread them evenly and when the ground round is cooked, spread it out on the top of the tater tots. Now, add some vegan cheese or you can substitute it with vegan cheese sauce and place it into the oven for a few minutes. And when the cheese melts which will take a few minutes, top it with some Jalapenos and some cherry tomatoes or you can even prepare some salsa. Add some vegan sour cream and some prepared guacamole on top of it.


Last but not least top it with some green onions and cilantro and your Vegan tater tot nachos are ready. Ready to serve and ready to eat.

Instructions to follow for the Totchos recipe:

Begin with preheating your oven to 350°F.


You can either choose to bake the tater tots or if you like them fried – you can fry them as per your taste and if baking, arrange them in a layer in the baking tray.


Next, Heat veggie ground round in a pan on medium-high heat. The ground round is to be seasoned with some taco seasoning of your choice and as per your taste. Also, add a little water to enhance the flavor of the seasoning. 1/4th cup goes well in this quantity of nachos. Do stir it throughout till the ground round gains a brown color.

After arranging the tater tots in the dish, add ground round over the top along with the cheese.


Bake these until the cheese is melted, it will take around 5-10 minutes.
