Bacon and Jalapeno Tots with Cheddar Dip

Who doesn't love bacon and tater tots?  This little bite has both with the addition of a little kick from the jalapeno!  The cheddar dip is the perfect addition to the spicy bite :)  They can be deep fried or baked.

You'll Need
  • 1 bag of tater tots
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 4-5 jalapenos (depending on how big they are)
  • tooth pics
Preheat oven to 375 degrees or preheat oil to 375 degrees in a deep fryer or deep skillet with oil.  Slice jalapenos into thin rings.  Slice the pound of bacon slices in half.  Place 1 ring of jalapeno on a tater tot and wrap with a half slice of bacon, secure with a tooth pic and set aside.  Continue for remaining taters.  Place onto baking sheet lined with foil and bake 20 minutes or until bacon is crisp and brown OR place taters into deep fryer and fry for 3-5 minutes or until brown and crispy.  For both methods drain taters on paper towels to remove excess grease.  Serve with cheddar dip below!

Cheddar Dip
  • 2lb block Velveeta cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 16 oz jar of salsa
Melt cheese with salsa in microwave until melted or place in crock pot on low.  Stir and serve with tots!
