I use canned chili for this Cheesy Hot Dog Tater Tot Casserole but you could use homemade. Either with or without beans. You’ll need 2 15-ounce cans which would be just under 4 cups of homemade chili. I typically use one can with beans and one can without.

Eight hot dogs get sliced and added to the chili along with ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, finely chopped onion, and just a few red pepper flakes.

Place the mixture in a 9×13-inch baking dish and sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Then top with the tater tots. Bake for 30 minutes to get the tater tots crispy. Then sprinkle another cup of shredded cheese on top and bake 10 more minutes. Then get ready to dig into all that cheese!

Be sure to either finely chop the onion or saute it for a few minutes. Otherwise it will taste raw and crunchy in the finished casserole.

  1. THANK YOU FOR SHARING, you did great.

    This stuff is absolutely amazing and it’s made with ingredients most have in hand at all times especially with kids in the house.

    We always have cheddar cheese in the fridge and a couple to a few packs of hotdogs and a pack or 2 of tater tots in the freezer usually at all times along with several cans of chili and ketchup and Worcestershire sauce which those ingredients are all I used because they were all we have at this time.

    I cut the recipe in half because I only had a half bag of tots that needed used up and this was excellent and turned out most excellent for a quick hassle free meal. I didn’t measure anything, just sliced up an opened pack of hotdogs that needed used, had 5 leftover in the pack and used a can of thick chili with beans and some ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and mixed it all together following the rest of the direction. Turned out great.

    Be a nice easy dinner on cold evenings at home.

    Much appreciated by us.

    Will be made often.
