This recipe was originally called “Cheesy Potato Soup”, but when my husband found out how it was made, he renamed it to “Tater Tot Soup”. Kinda gives my cheater secret away, but it’s cute. 😉
This is such an easy potato soup recipe and is my cool weather quickie meal. It makes a ton, so you won’t have to cook the next day!
Tater Tot Soup
One bag of frozen tater tots (32oz) or 12 hashbrown patties
2 cans chicken broth
1 stick butter or margarine
6 slices American cheese
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup green onions, sliced with tops
1 tsp minced garlic
2 cups sour cream
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Real bacon bits
In a large pot, combine tater tots and broth over medium heat until combined and the tater tots are crumbled. Add remaining ingredients except the bacon. Stir well, then cover and cook on low for 20 minutes or until hot. Do not boil. Garnish with bacon bits and extra shredded cheese (if desired). Enjoy!
Makes about 10-12 servings.
