Country Rebel Recipes
If you haven’t figured it out yet, those of us in the Country Rebel Kitchen are crazy about bacon, ranch and tater tots. You can imagine our excitement when we meshed all of those together to make a tasty appetizer just in time for the big game. If we’re being honest, this recipe will be enjoyed all year round, with or without a big game.
What exactly did we come up with when we combined bacon, ranch and tater tots? Crack BLT Totchos! Tater tots meets nachos in this easy-to-make one-pan treat. Frozen tots are tossed with dry ranch dressing mix and baked before being topped with loads of cheese, bacon, tomatoes, chopped baby spinach and a creamy sauce. Why do we call it “crack”? It’s a common term used to describe the combination of ranch dressing, bacon and cheese flavors because the deliciousness is so addictive!
The result is a fun twist on traditional nachos that everyone will enjoy! Get the full recipe below and watch the video to see how easy this dish is to make!
