I’ve made this a couple of times now and it’s sooo good and easy to make. I didn’t have a capsicum (grated two carrots instead and mixed through) and substituted the tinned tomato’s for a can of condensed tomato soup. This will be a regular in my house and all the family enjoy it.

OMG, this is the bomb! I added chilly beans and corn to the mixture as well. The potato gems complemented the Mexican mince superbly and the avocado and sour cream topped it off nicely. Will be a regular, thanks so much Pauline!

I tried this tonight. It was excellent.
We didn’t use the cheese but only because the kids didn’t want it

Tonight I finally made this and it was amazing! I bought tater tots weeks ago when first I joined this group and saw this recipe, never bought them before. So simple, tasty and we will make again for sure.
