1/2 pound of ground beef. I used to make it with a whole pound , but everyone in the house complained and I toned it down a bit. Which was cool, saves money.
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup
shredded cheese - we like colby-jack!
1 package of frozen tater tots - 16 ounce bag
Fry up the ground beef and drain it very well.
Stir in the cream of mushroom soup and season with salt and pepper.
Put this mixture into a casserole dish.
Layer the tater tots on top of this in an even layer.
Top with shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until the tots are golden brown and hot.
