Salsa Verde Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Salsa Verde Chicken Tater Tot Casserole - ridiculously good! Everyone LOVES this easy Mexican casserole!! Chicken, green chiles, sour cream, chicken broth, cumin, flour and butter. No cream of anything soup! We make this at least once a month! SO good!!

Stop what you are doing and make this Salsa Verde Chicken Tater Tot Casserole!! OMG! Crazy good!!! Chicken and tater tots tossed in a creamy green chile sauce and pepper jack cheese. All of my favorites in one pan! We ate this for lunch and leftover for dinner the same day.

The creamy green chile sauce is one of my favorites. It is so easy to make and it doesn't have any Cream of Anything soup. I always use full fat sour cream in the sauce. I haven't tried it with low-fat or fat-free sour cream. If you try either one of those varieties, let me know how it turns out.

This casserole has a little kick from the green chiles and pepper jack cheese. You can certainly use a different cheese if you are worried about the heat from the pepper jack cheese. Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese would work great.

  1. Would this work as a freezer meal? Make up and freeze before cooking?

  4. Had a similiar casserole but lost it. So glad to find this one. In memory comparing my old recipe it froze beautifully. I would think this one would also. I am a great believer in once fixing twice eating. Thanks Steph for all the hard work you do. I know I can always find something great on your site. Gwen
