I love tater tot hotdish and when I saw this recipe that makes it a little healthier, I just had to try it! It has the meat and potatoes that a recipe needs to make the hubby happy!! It calls for thawing both the vegetables and the tater tots, but as usual, I forgot to do this so I just threw them in and it turned out great! It's always nice to skip a step!!
