  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Taco Bell chipotle sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 6 large flour tortilla wraps
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, chopped green onions, cilantro


  1. Cook the Tater Tots: Preheat the oven and cook the tater tots according to the package instructions until they are golden and crispy.
  2. Cook the Ground Beef: In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Once fully cooked, drain any excess grease.
  3. Assemble the Burrito Filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked ground beef, crispy tater tots (slightly crushed), shredded cheddar cheese, and shredded monterey jack cheese. Mix until well combined.
  4. Warm the Tortillas: Warm the flour tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave for about 10-15 seconds to make them pliable.
  5. Assemble the Burritos: Spoon a generous portion of the filling onto the center of each tortilla. Drizzle a spoonful of Taco Bell chipotle sauce over the filling. Add a dollop of sour cream.
  6. Fold and Roll: Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling and then fold the bottom up, rolling tightly to form a burrito.
  7. Melt the Cheese: Place the burritos in a baking dish and sprinkle additional shredded cheese on top. Bake in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Serve: Remove the burritos from the oven. Garnish with diced tomatoes, chopped green onions, and cilantro if desired. Serve hot with extra sour cream and chipotle sauce on the side.
