Touchdown Tots

Touchdown Tots


  • ¼ cup TOSTITOS® Salsa Con Queso
  • 3 cups Frozen Tater Tots (Thawed)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • ½ lb. Lean Ground Beef (Lean and mean preferred)
  • 2 cups Vegetable Oil (About 2 inches in a large skillet)
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Plastic Sandwich Bag


  • Heat oil over medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, crumble tater tots with a fork then mix in egg, parsley, ½ tsp salt, milk and flour.
  • In a separate bowl, mix TOSTITOS® Salsa Con Queso, ½ tsp salt and ground beef.
  • Divide meat and cheese mixture evenly into 8 balls then shape into an oval.
  • Align all 8 footballs on a baking sheet.
  • Coat each football in the potato mixture and re-form into an oval.
  • Carefully place footballs in hot oil and fry for 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Use a skewer to help roll the footballs in oil so they’ll keep their shape. Wear an apron and be careful, oil is hot and poppin’.
  • Fill the sandwich bag with sour cream and cut a teeny tiny hole in the corner to create a piping bag.
  • Gently squeeze the bag to add laces to each football.
  • Once this final step is completed, celebrate with an end zone dance. You’ve earned it.
