Line a baking sheet with foil and bake mini tater tots according to package instructions until very crisp. Sprinkle liberally with your favorite shredded cheese and then broil until the cheese is melted. Transfer to a plate (don't forget all the crispy little cheesy bits!) and top with sour cream, crumbled crisp bacon, and scallions. It's like potato skins and nachos had a delicious, delicious baby.

I make something very similar to that but we add shredded chicken and taco seasoning. My husband and oldest daughter like it with sour cream and everyone else in the house eats it with ranch.

try my easy Indian snack mix that you can make in 15 minutes. Your ingridents are

  • 2 cups corn cereal (recommended: Corn Flakes)
  • 2 cups puffed rice cereal (recommended: Rice Krispies)
  • 1/4 cup shelled, skinless peanuts
  • 1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown or black mustard seeds
  • 8 to 10 fresh curry leaves, optional
  • 1/2 green serrano chile, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Small handful plantain chips, optional
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • How to prepare

    In a large wok over medium heat, toast the corn cereal, puffed rice cereal, peanuts, and pepitas until the cereals have crisped up, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan.

    Warm the oil in the same wok over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds (stand back, they'll pop!), curry leaves, green chile, and turmeric. Cook about 30 seconds. Turn the heat off.

    Add the cereal mixture, plantain chips, if using, and raisins. Season with salt. Toss until well combined, and pour into a big bowl. Crack a beer and enjoy!
