My Ore-Ida Totchos Adventure

20160106_111914As a part of my Jingle VoxBox from Influenster.com, I received a coupon for a free bag of Ore-Ida Tater Tots, which were to be used to try out one of the Totchos recipes from the Kraft Recipies Totchos Hub.  We choose the Loaded Totchos recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (32 oz.) Ore-Ida Tater Tots
  • 1 container (8 oz.) Kroger Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup Kraft Three Cheese Ranch Dressing
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh green onions, divided
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Kroger Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled

Steps:

  1. 20151231_111602Pre-heat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Bake tater tots as directed on package.
  3. Cook bacon as directed on the package.  Crumble.
  4. Mix sour cream, dressing and green onions until blended.
  5. Spread tater tots onto platter.
  6. Top with sour cream mixture, bacon, and cheese.

The Good…  This was sinfully yummy.  All of the things you love about Nachos mixed with all of the things you love about Tater Tots!  Easy to make too.  We used real bacon, so that had to be cooked separately, but it was still an easy dish to whip up.  Other than over time, for which we were doing other things, it took maybe 15 minutes?

The Bad…  The plate is supposed to serve 12.  There were 3 of us, and we devoured it all.  That means that each of us consumed 1120 calories , 80 grams of fat (32 of which were saturated fat), 140mg of cholesterol, and 2400mg of Sodium.  Yikes!  I highly recommend that if you make this, you make it as a party dish or as a side dish when serving several people.  Don’t temp yourself into throwing portion control out the window!
