Tasso Tot Casserole

When I found out that Hamilton Beach was sponsoring our next challenge, I was really excited! Then I was told it was a slow cooker challenge and I was thinking, "what could I cook in a slow cooker that would be very delicious and fun?" The answer was this recipe. This is a great dish to serve at a football party or as an appetizer at a family gathering. This Hamilton Beach Set & Forget 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker is amazing and it did the job perfectly!

Tasso Tot Casserole
by Luke
Adapted from "Crock Pot Tater Tot Casserole" from Tammilee Tips

3/4 pound of ground beef, seasoned to taste
1/2 pound of Smoked Tasso, diced (you can use bacon as a substitute)
1 small white onion, diced
1 can of Rotel tomatoes
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 bag of Tater Tots
3 cups total of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of sliced jalapenos
1 cup green onions, chopped

Brown the beef, tasso, onions and Rotel tomatoes in a skillet on medium heat. After the meat is browned pour mixture into the slow cooker, then mix the cream of chicken soup into the meat mixture. Top with tater tots, just enough to cover the top, but you can add a little extra if you are a big fan of tater tots. Cook on low for 2.5 hours.

When the slow cooker has 30 minutes remaining, uncover and add cheese, jalapenos, green onions, recover and continue cooking. Once the timer goes off, let it sit for a few minutes to cool, then serve!
