Taters Ole’

My mother-in-law, the recipe guru, put this one together on her own with intent of making her own “copy-cat” recipe from Taco John’s Potato Ole’s.  The basic recipe is easy and can be topped with your own likings.  Ole’!  [o-lay]  =)

1 15oz can refried beans
1-2 lbs prepared taco meat (depending on how meaty you like it)
1 small can of diced green chiles or 1 10oz can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles), I’ve also used 1c of salsa…it’s very flexible.
2lb bag of tater tots or tater rounds
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Sliced olives
Shredded lettuce

1.  Spread refried beans evenly in the bottom of a 9×13 pan
2.  Layer taco meat, green chiles (or salsa) and tater tots over the beans (in that
3.  Bake according to the tater tot directions.  Usually 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
4.  Remove from oven, sprinkle cheese over hot tater tots and bake for another 5-7
     minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly
5.  Top with your favorite mexi-toppings =)

Goes great with a side of yellow hominy cooked with butter and salt.  Mmmmm!
