Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Chicken tater tot casserole is an adaption of a casserole that my mom made while I was growing up. In her recipe you used ground beef and cream of mushroom soup. I used chicken, enchilada soup,  and cheese soup.


First, cook your chicken. You can season it if you want, but you don’t have to. I used Paula Deen’s house seasoning for mine.


When the chicken is cool enough to handle shred it using two forks.


In a pan, mix the chicken, the soups, and taco seasoning together on medium heat.


Pour into a casserole dish spreading the chicken and cheese mixture to cover the dish.


Top with tater tots and bake for 30-45 minutes in a 400 degree oven.


Add cheese to the top when you have around five minutes of cooking time left.


So good! You can serve with something else but this is a very filling meal just by itself!

This was so easy to make and such a great adaption of a meal that I grew up eating. The original of this was the first thing I learned how to make on my own and it has been a loved family recipe ever since. To make the original recipe just use ground beef and cream of mushroom soup. Everything else is the same.

Do you have any family recipes that you have changed up a bit to make them your own?
