Whether it’s for game day or just because you need a little pick me up, totchos are always a good call. For those of you who haven’t tried it yet, “totchos” is the beautiful combination that is nachos and tater tots. That’s right, swap the chips out – they always get soggy anyways – and sub in some perfectly crispy tater tots. Add to that some hearty Mexican chorizo and creamy queso dip…and lots and lots of cheese, and you’ve got yourself a dish that everyone will love!
