What are totchos, you ask? Tater Tots + Nachos = Totchos. Yes, totchos combine the potatoey goodness of tots with the melty cheesy goodness of nachos. Sure you can do your basic totchos with some salsa and daiya melted over the top. Or you can put lots of stuff on top! pretty much anything you'd put on a taco would be delicious here, but here's what I did:
|I promise there are beans in there, they're just hiding under the ooey gooey daiya.|
1 Package Tater Tots
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced
a couple of handfuls of frozen spinach
1 (15-oz) can black beans
taco seasoning to taste
daiya cheese, pepper jack flavor (or whatever vegan you like best)
1 scallion, chopped1 avocado, cut into small cubes
Start cooking tater tots according to package directions.
When the tots have about 10 minutes left, heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet. Add the onion, pepper, spinach, beans, and taco seasoning to taste. Cook 5-10 minutes or until everything is hot and the flavors have come together.
Take the tater tots out of the oven and transfer however many you want to a bowl or plate. Top with bean mixture, salsa and cheese (you might need to pop it in the microwave for a few minutes if the heat of the beans isn't enough to get the cheese melted). Sprinkle scallion and avocado on top just before eating.
