Tater Tot Casserole

We recently watched Napoleon Dynamite. We have watched it a million times, and one of our favorite scenes is the one regarding the "tots".  "Give me your tots" is a line often said in our house! One after another of the boys quoted that to me when they heard what I was making for dinner. They think they are so funny, and original! Ha! Whether you have watched Napoleon Dynamite and quote it like we do, or not, I think you will enjoy this simple yet satisfying tater tot casserole.

Tater Tot Casserole
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can diced green chilies
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 bag tater tots
Lawry's seasoning salt

Brown onion and ground beef. Drain fat away. Mix with green chilies and cream of mushroom soup. Pour into greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle cheese on top of beef. Place the tater tots in a single layer on top of the cheese, sprinkle with Lawry salt  and pepper. Bake according to the tater tot bag. I baked mine longer because we really like crispy tots!

*Big thank you to my sister-in-law Wendee for sharing this delicious recipe!
