I just found out that the word ‘totchos’ existed and I really enjoy saying it now.
Maybe it’s not in the dictionary - but still, it’s a thing. And I love a made up word.
Also I love tater tots. And I love making fun food sooooo here we are.
These tater tots are next level cause they have been crusted with tortilla chips. It’s a move you’re gonna wanna take! I was so happy when I came up with this unique idea that I had not seen done before! Sooo of course I was excited to share it with y'all!
Tortilla Chip Crusted Tater Tots
Recipe by Krysten Jorgensen, aka The Daily Kale
1 sweet potato (boiled and peeled)
1/2 bag of tortilla chips ( I used Siete brand)
Spices: Cumin, Garlic powder, Paprika, Salt, Black Pepper, Chili Powder
To make the sweet potato tater tots:
I peeled and then boiled a sweet potato for about 15 minutes.
Drained and waited for it to cool.
Grated the sweet potato and then added black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, salt, cumin and chili powder and stirred it together.
Then I formed them into tater tot shapes.
Next I blended about half the bag of @sietefoods nacho chips in my food processor. I tossed each tot into the chips to fully coat.
Bake at 450 for 35 minutes, flipping half way through.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce orrrr make Totchos!
If you decide to go the TOTCHO route, here is the crema and all of the other ingredients I used.
Avocado Crema :
2 tbsp Lime juice
Handful of Cilantro
Handful of Spinach
2 tbsp Hemp seeds
Pinch of Salt
1 Garlic clove
2-4 tbsp water or more
*Blend everything together except for the avocado and only 2 tbsp of water to start.
Blend until combined. Then add in avocado and blend.
Add the extra water and blend to thin out if necessary.
I topped the tots with red onion, tomato, cilantro, black beans, @sietefoods cashew queso blanco and cashew nacho sauces, avocado crema and jalapeños.
‘Twas delicious and I hope you’ll tag me on instagram if you try it out for yourself #thedailykale
