Chili Tot Casserole!

This was a nice change from the other two tater tot casseroles I make. Two of our other faves are the Redneck Casserole & Then The Dougar's Tater tot Casserole which I haven't blogged about just yet :)

Chili Tots Casserole

Serve with Salad

from: Casseroles & Crock-pots Yahoo Group

1 pound ground beef
2 (15 ounce) cans chili without beans
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (2 1/4 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (32 ounce) package frozen Tater Tots

In large skillet, cook the beef over medium high heat until no longer
pink; drain. Stir in the chili, tomato sauce, olives and chiles.
Transfer to two greased 8-inch square baking dishes. Sprinkle with
cheese; top with Tater Tots. Cover and freeze one casserole for up to
3 months.

Cover and bake the remaining casserole at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40
minutes or until heated through.

Frozen casserole: remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking. Do
not thaw. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or
until heated through.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream.
