Tater Tots Covered in Chili Cheese Nachos (Tachos)

Tater Tots covered in Chili Cheese Nachos (Tachos) has a named coined by a local wing joint. I remember the first time I had them. On paper they sounded incredible, and in reality they were even better. A perfect weekend indulgent food that makes you feel like you’re at a sporting event while in the comfort and safety of your home. An obvious, and yet mind blowing, way to use the leftover hot dog chili.
