  3. Add ground beef and tomatoes to skillet and cook until meat is no longer pink.
  4. Transfer mixture into the prepared  slow cooker.
  5. Spread Cream of Chicken Soup over top mixture.
  6. Place tater tots across the top of all your ingredients listed above.
  7. Cover.  Cook on Low for 2 – 3  hours.
  8. Reduce heat to Warm setting, add peas and shredded cheese.  Replace lid on slow cooker and keep on Warm until cheese is melted.

NOTE: You can also used ground sausage in place of the ground beef to give it some zip! YUM!

Hey, Stacey, I usually buy my Rotels at whatever Dollar store I go to. The Chilis are a nice bump in the tomatoes.They’re cheap and I use them to add a little spice to everything from meatloaf to chile to whatever. Not super spicey.

This is a go to meal for our family! We’ve never made it in the crock, though, so excited to try it out!! We add a 1/2 a bag of frozen mixed veggies in to make it a whole meal. 🙂

I made this recipe with two adjustments: I used sausage, and the Rotell tomatoes I used had habaneros in them.

Hi do I need to precook the tater tots? Or can I just use the frozen tater tot and just place them in the slow cooker?

While my kids & I all love cheese, my husband doesn’t. ( I know – GASP!). Does the cheese make this dish or do you think it could be omitted?

I made this tonight and liked it, but my husband didn’t. I think I’ll try it with sausage. He isn’t a huge fan of ground beef.
