Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef

1 small onion, diced finely

1 clove garlic, minced

1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles

1 (1 oz) package taco seasoning mix

1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 (12 oz) package frozen corn

3 cups shredded mexican blend cheese

1 (28 oz) package frozen tater tots

1 (10 oz) can red enchilada sauce

toppings: olives, cilantro, sour cream, tomatoes, avocado

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. For extra crispy tater tots, bake tater tots for about 10 minutes while preparing the beef mixture - otherwise prepare as follows.

2. In a large skillet, brown the beef and the onion. Add the garlic towards the end of the browning process and cook for 1 minute. Drain.

3. Add the green chiles, taco seasoning mix, black beans, corn, and 2 cups of the cheese. Stir together to combine. If your skillet isn’t big enough you may need to stir it together in a bowl. Pour mixture into the prepared 9x13 pan. Arrange tater tots on top of the mixture in a single layer. Pour the enchilada sauce on top of the casserole as evenly as you can.

4. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until tater tots are nice and crispy. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top and place back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted. Top with olives, cilantro, sour cream, tomatoes, avocado when serving if desired.

Bon Appetit!
