MEXICAN STREET CORN TOTCHOS RECIPE {Tater Tots Nachos}

What are totchos? Totchos are a word scramble of ‘tater tots’ and ‘nachos’. As well, tater tots are used as the base for nachos instead of tortilla chips.

Just like Nachos, you can top your tater tots (Totchos) with any combination of ingredients.

I’ll go ahead and admit it. I love tater tots! I can’t pass on getting tater tots whenever we stop at Sonic (which, actually isn’t very often). Our affection for TexMex flavors and nachos inspired this recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have been.

HOW TO MAKE MEXICAN STREET CORN TOTCHOS

This is a straightforward easy recipe and great for teens to make. You’ll start by cooking the tater tots. I prefer to bake them instead of frying them but you can cook them however you want.

While the tater tots are cooking, stir together the lime crema ingredients. Place it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the Mexican Totchos.

You can also slice the jalapeno and chop the cilantro while the tots are cooking.

When the tots are done transfer them to a serving dish and top with the corn, jalapeno, cotija, lime zest, and cilantro.

Finally, drizzle the lime crema over the totchos and dust them with chili powder.

You’ll want to serve them immediately.
