Look­ing for a fun meal that the kids will even like to help make?  Slow Cook­er Tater Tot Casse­role is it! When­ev­er I make this my 5 year old wants to help out in the kitchen.  Tater Tots are just fun! (Note: Trad­er Joe’s makes a great frozen tot.) Enjoy!

  1. Grease a 6-Quart slow cook­er with non-stick cook­ing spray. Set aside.
  2. Cook onions with 1 T. oil in a large skil­let over medi­um-high heat until almost translu­cent.
  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.

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?

Do you drain the beef?

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.
