What you need: 

1 batch of "Nutritional Yeast Con Queso Sauce" except instead of using tomatoes, add a can of condensed vegetable soup (undiluted)

I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I used frozen spinach, a small onion, a green pepper, and some pico de gallo. Omitted the meatless crumbles. Deeeeelish! I'll be making this again! :D

I have never even heard of such a thing! My bf is tater tots number 1 fan, so maybe he'll eat a real vegetable or two if I hide them under a layer of them. Thanks for the idea!

Tasty but I doubled the veggies and crumbles and it still seemed like there weren't enough veggies. I also didn't have condensed soup so I used a home-made cream of mushroom kind of soup, but even though it was more "liquidy" it worked well. I will defiantly make it again, but with way more veggies.

Tried this because we were curious about whether a tater tot casserole would be any good. I found that there were several things that I would have changed about it if I would have known.

1. This recipe calls for one batch of the queso cheese mix, but this wasn't hardly enough to cover the veggies in the bottom of the dish.
2. I used way more than 1/2 a cup of veggies and we thought it still didn't have enough. Same with the meat crumbles.
3. The bag of tater tots I used was 28oz instead of 32oz and we still felt that there were far too many tater tots.

It's an okay dish, and it gave me ideas for something new I'm going to try next time, but I will probably never make this again. My friends felt that the items didn't necessarily go well together. It seemed like a dish I would likely make when I felt like a food that tasted like it was unhealthy (while probably still being fairly healthy).

This was simple and tasty! I used Healthy Choice's Country Medley Vegetable Soup and frozen mixed veggies. I didn't have any crumbles, so I just made it without them. Some things I might try next time:

- Not putting salt (or reducing it) in the Queso Sauce because the soup probably has enough in it.
- Putting some sliced onion on top of the sauce before adding the tots.
- Adding some crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce (might give it some extra kick)
- Putting a small amount of diced tomatoes in the sauce 'cuz well...I like tomatoes.
- Using a different soup next time and seeing how it affects the overall taste.

I'm wondering if using sliced potatoes instead of tots would come out equally as tasty.

I bet this could be turned into a Mexican Tater Tot Casserole: Use Queso Sauce (keep the tomatoes), black beans, crushed tortilla chips, green chiles, and salsa. Add some jalapeno if you like it spicy. Maybe even use some Soyrizo.

Overall, nice casserole! I love tater tots, so I was immediately attracted to this recipe. I can definitely see myself making this in the future!  ;)b

Made this last night, used "meat" crumbles and broccoli and everyone loved it.  There were no leftovers!
