Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Nachos (Totchos)

With just 5 minutes of prep, these super simple Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Nachos (Totchos) are the perfect game day grub!  Get your creative nacho on and enjoy this twist on buffalo chicken wings!

I literally just had to google when the Superbowl is happening this year.  I typically don’t even know it’s going down until a few days prior, when the annual football pool starting floating around at work.  I honestly have no idea who’s playing.  And as bad as this hurts my overall man rating, I really don’t care all that much.

The Superbowl for me means three things…

Emphasis on that last one.  Especially the food part.

Nothing upscale or refined.  No forks required.  I want to get down and dirty with big, bold, and tasty goodness.  Obviously nachos come to mind.  But we can do better.  Take it up a notch.  I’m talking creative nachos.  Like these Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Nachos.  And if you’re one of those cool kids, you already know that tater tot nachos are called… TOTCHOS.

I’m no stranger to totchoss.  There were these Loaded Baked Potato Totchos.  And then these Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Totchos.  Oh, and I almost forgot about the Korean Pork Sweet Potato Totchos.

Yup, it’s tater tot nachos overload up in here.  But these Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Nachos?  They might just be my favorite totchos creation yet.

Because really, what’s more game day appropriate than buffalo chicken?  Nothing.
