Chef's Crispy Buffalo Chicken Totchos (Tater Tot Nachos) Recipe Is the Taste You'll Crave

If you've ever craved a platter of sizzling nachos or a pan of crispy tater tots, my buffalo chicken totchos (tater tot nachos) is the recipe for you. Crispy tater tots with buffalo chicken sauce and melted cheese, topped with blue cheese dressing: need I say more? These tater tot nachos (aka totchos) are perfect as a snack, side dish, lunchdinner or appetizer for Father's Day (or anytime). Everyone will tear them up! 

These buffalo chicken tater tot nachos are really easy to make, too. All you'll need for these over-the-top delicious potato nachos are frozen tater tots, shredded cooked rotisserie chicken, hot sauce, blue cheese dressing, shredded cheese, green onion and grated Parmesan cheese. The totchos are layered together to form an amazing tower of cheesy, spicy, crunchy goodness the whole family will want to dig into. 

If you prefer beef or pork over chicken, you can easily substitute cooked chopped steak or pork. Fancy it up with your favorite nacho toppings like guacamole, sour cream, jalapenos or black olives.
