Mexican Tater Tot Casserole Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 12 oz. 99% Fat-Free Ground Turkey Breast
  • 1½ cups black beans, drained
  • 1½ cups whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup salsa (no sugar added)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ cups 2% shredded cheddar cheese
  • 60 tater tots
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Nonstick spray
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray your casserole dish with nonstick spray
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the ground turkey for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. If it begins to stick, you may want to add some fat-free broth or a small amount of nonstick spray to help prevent it from sticking.
  3. When ground turkey is cooked through, add in black beans, corn, salsa, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. Cook for additional 3-4 minutes or until everything is mixed well and heated through.
  4. Pour mixture into the casserole dish and sprinkle the top with shredded cheese.
  5. Layer the tater tots across the top of the mixture and sprinkle lightly with pepper and salt.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until heated through and tater tots are crisp.
  7. Note: You may want to add salt and pepper to finish, but I typically skip until time to taste as the salsa and canned goods can have extra sodium.
