Sloppy Joe's Tater Tot Casserole


1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained

Salt and pepper (to taste)

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 cup Pico de Gallo (fresh salsa)

1 can sloppy joe seasoning sauce 

Shredded cheddar cheese (to taste)

1 bag frozen tater tots 



Preheat oven to 375. 

Spread tots onto a cookie sheet and bake until almost done. Remove from oven and set aside.  

In a heavy pan on the stove, brown the hamburger until cooked through; add onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper and simmer on low until vegetables are softened. Add sloppy joe sauce and Pico de Gallo, stir until well combined. Pour cooked meat mixture into a 9 x 13 glass baking dish and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Arrange tots on top of the meat and cheese mixture until the entire surface is covered. Sprinkle more cheese on top of the tots and put back in the oven to finish baking. The deliciousness is ready when the tots are crispy and the meat is hot and bubbling. Enjoy!
