  • 1 (32 ounce) package frozen bite-size potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½lime, juiced
  • 1tomato, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped black olives
  • ½ cup fresh jalapeno pepper slices
  • 1avocado – peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions

  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread potato nuggets out onto a baking sheet.


  • Step 2

    Bake in the preheated oven until nuggets are golden brown and crisp, 22 to 24 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add water and taco seasoning to beef; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid reduces, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler. Arrange potato nuggets on an oven-proof platter and cover evenly with ground beef; spread Mexican cheese and pepperjack cheese over the top.

  • Step 5

    Cook potato nuggets under the broiler until cheese melts, 1 to 3 minutes. Whisk sour cream and lime juice together in a bowl. Top potato nuggets with tomatoes, black olives, jalapenos, avocado, sour cream mixture, scallions, and cilantro, respectively.
