Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Step 2

Cover a baking sheet with tin foil and lay out the tater tots on the baking sheet.

Step 3

Once preheated, put the tater tots into the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and crispy.

Step 4

While the tater tots are cooking, chop up the sliced bacon, and put in a pan to fry. Set burner temperature to medium-high heat.

Step 5

While bacon is cooking, slice the 3-4 jalapenos up, removing seeds if you are not a fan of the added heat.

Step 6

Once tater tots are done, take out of oven. Add shredded cheese and bacon on top of the tots.

Step 7

Place the tots back into the oven, turning the heat to Broil. Keep in long enough for cheese on top to melt.

Step 8

Once cheese is melted, take back out of oven and add japaenos. Add sour cream if desired. Serve and enjoy!


Any cheese will do. Cheddar is a pretty all around good flavor, but mozerella, colby jack, etc will do just fine. Any flavor of bacon will do.
