  • Pour mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with cheese; top evenly with tots.

  • Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until tots are golden. Top with jalapeño slices.

  • Note: For testing purposes only, we used Bush's Chili Magic Chili Starter Traditional Recipe and Ore-Ida Tater Tots. To kick up the flavor, substitute 1 (14 1/2-oz.) can petite diced tomatoes with jalapeños for petite diced tomatoes.
