Tater Tot Enchilada Casserole

I’m sort of glad that January is almost over. For one, I haven’t been around the blog much. I have been in sort of a blogging funk and I am ready to shake it off! And two, February is, after all, my birthday month. And also, January is so bleak and boring and grey. I am ready for Spring! And warmer weather, and colorful flowers popping up.

But since it is still winter, and snowy, and cold, I thought I would share something to warm the soul.

So who doesn’t love Tater Tot Casserole? I LOVE tater tot casserole and if it were healthier I would eat it weekly! But this Tater Tot Enchilada Casserole brings it to an entirely new level. An amazing level!
