This was a pretty good recipe that everyone enjoyed, especially Paisley:)
– 1 pound ground beef
– 1 tsp. minced garlic
– 1 package taco seasoning
– 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
– 1 can black beans, drained
– 16 ounces, Mexican shredded cheese
– 32 ounce package frozen tater tots
– 19 ounce can enchilada sauce
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Brown ground beef and minced garlic in a medium sized pan. Drain fat, and add taco seasoning (no water), corn, and black beans. Cook until heated through.
Next, remove beef mixture to a large bowl, and add about 3/4 of the frozen tater tots, and 3/4 of the shredded cheese. Stir together to combine.
Pour 1/3 of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of your prepared pan. Add the tater tot mixture to the pan, and pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the tater tots. Bake for 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes are up, remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle on the remaining cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes before serving. Some garnishes for the top are: green chiles, sour cream, salsa, onions, and black olives for more of a Mexican flavor. Enjoy!
