Double Stuffed Pumpkin Pie Oreos
Oh man, oh man.
I have been dying to tell you guys about these for days. Daaayyyyzzz. Just oh my gosh.
It’s like a tater tot, but instead of the tater, there’s pumpkin, and um – lots of cheese! Oh yes.
The inspiration for these came from these sweet potato parmesan tater tots. Basically, I just wanted another excuse to make some darn tots! But then I started thinking, ok well not really. I just spotted the cute “sugar pie” pumpkin sitting on my kitchen table and was like, “oh I can roast that. I should totally roast that. Oh and I can add cheese and chipotle and…. YUM.”
Then the best part hit me.
Holy moly, I can totally turn the pumpkin into tater tots! Yes, yes, yes!!
But they’re not tater tots, because a pumpkin is a squash so they are more like squash tots, but that just sounded super weird. So plain old tots it is.
I love this combo of chipotle cheddar mixed with pumpkin. It’s a little different than the traditional sage or cinnamon that you get when roasting pumpkin. Not that I don’t love those flavors, because I definitely do, but this combo is really different and works great.
Actually, our house has been smelling a lot like Thanksgiving this week.
It’s kind of awesome.
Except for the part where I honestly almost caught the whole oven on fire.
Long story short I needed some toasted coconut, but I needed it like right that second. So genius me thought to use the broiler…….
and then forget about it for five minutes.
FYI – it was four minutes and 30 seconds too long. It ended in me pulling out a flaming pan of flambe coconut. Sounds cool right, coconut flames? Yeah, well trust me it was SO not cool. They were some BIG flames.
Honestly, sometimes I should not be allowed in the kitchen.
The other day I caught a towel on fire. Most day’s I burn the heck out of my skin and yesterday the milk boiled over. Yeah, that was really not fun to clean up.
But hey, at least I got the pumpkin tots out of the oven before they burned!
These are really pretty simple to make. Just roast a pumpkin like you would a sweet potato, mash it up, add some seasonings and cheese and then coat them in crushed up sweet potato chips. Yeah, that right there tells you these things are going to be amazing!
Then you bake them to crispy perfection. And while they bake to said perfection you should probably start making the avocado blue cheese ranch. That stuff is good just on its own, but pair it with these tots…
UNREAl. You have to make these. Hey, and they are perfect for Thursday night football too.

Pumpkin tot stacks!
Brilliant! But if you were thinking about substituting a can of pumpkin you won’t get the same results. The pumpkin in the can is too wet. Roasting a squash or sweet potato in the oven helps to dry it out. The texture will be much better that way. This is my first visit to your website. I’m excited about exploring more of your recipes! Thanks!
Happy Friday!🎃 I am delighted to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for trying it out and sharing your review! xx
Any suggestions flavor-wise on what I could swap the sweet potato chips for? I couldn’t find any at my grocery store ?
You could just use regular potato chips. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
We ended up making these with chile lime chips we had on hand and OMG these are amazing! Ours ended up really big so it made far less than 36 but I am not complaining about pumpkin chip nuggets! Will def make again!
Awesome!! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a try! Have a great weekend:) xTieghan
I made these yesterday, and they are delicious but definitely need to have A LOT of sweet potato chips on hand! I went through a 7oz bag and wished I had bought more! The flavors of the tots and the avocado blue cheese ranch sauce are fabulous and go great together. I roasted the pumpkin and made the sauce earlier in the day to save time later.
Thank you so much Emily! xTieghan
I’m so excited to try these today! If I’m short on time, Would it still be ok if I used store-bought pumpkin purée instead of roasting it at home?
Yes that would be totally fine to do! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
I am trying to make these tomorrow but have a couple of questions:
1. What does the “about 1 ½” mean at the end of the description of the amount of Pumpkin to use? Or in other words, if I’m using a fresh pumpkin, how much roasted smashed pumpkin should I use?
2. What does the “6 or 7” mean at the end of the description of the amount of sweet potato chips to use? 6 or 7 chips?
So sorry for the confusion, you want to use 1 1/4-1 1/2 cups of pumpkin and 6-7 cups of chips. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Can these be made ahead of time and frozen?
That would be fine to do. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
