Um…. I really do not know what to say.

Totchos Supreme Burgers |

I mean, I did something that some people will most likely may be appalled by.

Have you heard of Totchos?

Totchos Supreme Burgers |

Well, totchos are like nachos, but instead of tortilla chips you use tater tots.

Yeah, tater tots. This is Creighton food.

Remember how on Monday I said my brain had been taken over by guy food? This is the start of that guy food. Yesterday we had super healthy shakes, so today these are totally acceptable. Don’t you like how my brain works?

So anyway, I took the totchos idea and I went bigger, I put it on a burger.

Is that weird?

Alright, I know that is weird, but sometimes weird is good. If I am being totally honest, I cannot believe I made this burger. It is kind of a lot of meat for me, but like I said earlier, I was pressured into it. Sibling pressure is the worst.

Peer pressure had nothing on me. Really, I mean nothing. I went through all of high school without even a swig of alcohol (I know, miss goodie two shoes) or any other illegal substance. People thought I was a total freak and I totally am, but it is just not my thing.

BUT sibling pressure?

I totally cave.

And when I say sibling pressure I really only mean one sibling.

Creigh is a burger + tater tot freak.

The rest of them totally thought this burger was weird. Do not get me wrong, they ate it – and they liked it… but they thought it was weird.

Weird or not, it is kind ofΒ an amazing burger. A burger that your gotta eat at least once in your life time……

but hopefully more.

And if you were to maybe put an egg on top, you would maybe, just maybe, be my hero.

The only reason I did not was because I just could not fit another thing on top, but when I made the leftovers for dinner you better believe I made some eggs. They were good.

Oh, and if bacon is your thing, I added that too.

So yeah, these burger are just epic.

  • 6 slices cooked bacon crumble 2 of the slices
  • 1 pound frozen tater tots
  • 1 1/4 cups sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 recipe [guacamole |]
  • 6 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 cup salsa optional

Chipotle Crema


  • To make the crema mix together the greek yogurt, coconut milk, chipotle peppers in adobo, lime juice, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cook tater tots according to package directions, but make sure to cook the tater tots until very crispy. I cooked mine for about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat a grill or griddle over medium-high heat.
  • Combine the beef, chorizo, red pepper, chili powder, smoked paprika and pepper in a medium size bowl. Mix until just combined and then divide the meat into 5-6 patties. Grill the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare or longer if you prefer. Add a slice of cheese right on top of the burgers. Let the cheese melt and then remove from the grill or griddle.
  • Preheat the broiler to high.
  • To assemble the burgers spread a little bit of the chipotle crema on the bottom of the buns. Add the burgers and place them on a baking sheet. Top each burger with a few slices of bacon and some tater tots. Sprinkle the tater tots with shredded cheese. Place the pan back in the oven for 30 seconds to 1 minutes, but watch them closely!! Remove and top with guacamole, crumbled bacon, salsa, green onions, cilantro and then a drizzle of the chipotle crema. Add the bun and EAT.

  4. Absolutely love these photos … the burger looks just delicious! Just one question, though … how on earth do you get your mouth around that??!

  5. Totchos!! When I read the title of this post I was thinking, “What the….” Then of course! Tater tot nachos! Genius! These burgers look amazing! Your site design looks awesome, btw!

  6. Hi Tieghan! I’ve followed your yummy recipes through Instagram but am finally able to to get to your blog and it’s a) beautiful and b) you’re 20!! WOW! Go you! When I was 20 I couldn’t boil an egg to make egg salad, much less make a recipe like Totchos Supreme Burgers. You are an inspiration to us all. Well done.

  7. This burger is BEYOND epic. I have never heard of totchos but I want them on my burgers for the rest of my life.

  8. Ummmm I don’t even know what to say either except for WOW. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Done. πŸ™‚

  9. whoa. that’s a burger. I have never heard of totchos before. My strange kids don’t particularly like tater tots or else I might try that!

  10. And now I officially want to put tater tots on my next veggie burger….or just on everything for that matter ;).

  11. This is another case of needing stretchy pants and a bib! Holy flippin amazing….love burgers like this. I’ve always wanted to open my own burger shop that does gourmet burgers. Lets go into business?? πŸ˜›

    Happy Blogging!
    Happy Valley Chow

  12. Totchos! I’ve never even thought of that concept but WHOA. And on a burger no less? I better not show this one to my boyfriend or else I know who’d be standing in line after work today for a bag of frozen tater tots! Total guy food.

    …that said, I’d so eat one, too. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, I know! Some people smushed them, some people did a little deconstructing of them and some people just use a for and knife. LOL!

      Thanks Charlotte! Hope they do not freak you out too much!

  13. This IS epic and totally genius!!! This burger is completely over the top. I am 110% all for totchos!!

  14. How have I never had totchos??? I wish I could jettison this recipe back to my 10-year old tot loving self…hell, I just need to have this right now. Only you, my dear…only you would put totchos on a burger, and I love it!

    1. Haha! I honestly never thought that I would buy tater tots. I was totally pressured into it, but I have to say it worked.

      Thanks Julia!

  15. Ohhhh my gosh! I am snowed in- wish I had all the ingredients to make this! Ooooo the torture!! LOL!

  16. Holy crap! This burger is STUFFED. I am totally intrigued by this totchos idea (never heard of it). Add all that guacamole and cheese and I’m pretty sure I’d be a happy camper.

    1. Up until a week and half ago I had no idea what they were either and I honestly thought I would never by tater tots, but um and did and it was good. Sometimes weird things just work.

      And yeah, the guacamole is my favorite part!

  17. Ohmygosh, I LOVE tater tots and haven’t had them in ages. This needs to go into my facial hole in the very near future. It’s so over the top that it makes sense…if that even makes any sense. Plus, my nickname is actually tater-tot, so I gotta have these. And, I am loving your zig-zag napkin? towel? It gives these pictures a POW!

    1. Um..I think you need these! I mean, your nickname is tater tot! Too cute!!

      Thanks Taylor!!

      Oh and it is a towel!

  18. Man I’d scoff this. And no putting tater tots in the burger is totally not weird. It’s sort of like having chips on the side without having to alternate between a few chips and a bite of burger.

  19. Honestly, I would have called this crazy mad. But then I saw your pictures, took a bite of my healthy oats/ Fage 0%/ honey bowl and decided you’re a total genius.
