What do you get when you marry nachos with potato skins? Totchos! I’ve swapped the traditional tortilla chips for crispy tater tots, layered on the nacho fixins’ and topped it all off with plenty of my secret ingredient guacamole.
The beauty of this quick-fix recipe is that the tater tots can be baked or fried, and when it comes to toppings, the sky’s the limit! I’ve opted for seasoned ground beef, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, black beans and fresh veggies. The result is the ultimate gameday snack or party appetizer for any size crowd.
One fair warning: While nachos may be a finger food, totchos definitely require a fork. And you may even want to consider a small shovel once you get a taste of these crispy tots covered in melted cheese. Fork and finger lickin’ good!

Didn’t have tots, so I used waffle fries. Great substitute.
Love that swap, Pat! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe!
Great! I doubled the cheese and it was awesome football food
Yessss! This is one of my fave football party foods. I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Julie!
My 13 year old son makes this for us about once a month and we all love it. We’ve done taco seasoned ground beef and fajita seasoned diced chicken breast with thumbs up on both. We like to let everyone assemble their own plate because we all like different toppings but it’s always a delicious hit.
Awesome! I’m SO thrilled you and your family have been enjoying this recipe, Aislynn!
My family and I loved the loaded totchos! So fun to assemble with the kids too. Thank you!
omg, so good! I t think I need some tatchos in my life this weekend!
