    Buffalo Chicken Totchos


    2 pounds frozen tater tots

    Buffalo Chicken:

    2½ cups rotisserie chicken, shredded (bones and skin discarded)

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper, to taste

    ¾ cup buffalo sauce

    2 green onions, thinly sliced

    Cheese Sauce:

    1½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

    1 tablespoon cornstarch

    1 cup evaporated milk

    1 tablespoon buffalo sauce


    6 strips smoked bacon, cooked and diced

    ¼ cup blue cheese dressing

    1 green onion, thinly sliced

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper, to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C.

    2. Arrange tater tots on a 11x17-inch nonstick baking sheet. Bake the tater tots according to package directions, about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway.

    3. While the bacon and tater tots cook, prepare your buffalo mixture and cheese sauce.

    4. In a mixing bowl, season chicken lightly with a pinch of salt and pepper. To the bowl, add the green onions and buffalo sauce. Mix well and keep warm.

    5. In a pot, combine cheddar cheese and cornstarch. Stir until cheese is well coated with the cornstarch. Set the saucepan set over medium heat, adding in evaporated milk and buffalo sauce.

    6. Bring sauce to simmer, whisking constantly until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened, about 5-8 minutes. Set aside and keep warm over very low heat. Stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

    7. Once crispy, remove bacon from oven. Place strips on top of a paper towel to strain excess fat. Chop strips into a rough dice. Set aside

    8. Remove tater tots from the oven once lightly browned on the bottom. Lightly season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    9. To assemble totchos, layer tater tots followed by the cheese sauce and buffalo chicken onto your serving platter.

    10. Garnish with blue cheese dressing, remaining buffalo sauce, bacon and remaining green onions.
