A Tex-Mex tater tot pizza is so much more than just salsa and tater tots… it’s got pickled jalapenos too! Oh yeah, and mozzarella cheese, yummy oeey gooey cheese. We start with a nice layer of salsa, then pre-baked tater tots on a hefty bed of mozza with the kicker, the pickled jalapenos.
Magic happens when you dip a tater tot in salsa so we thought lets bring that together with even more magic, jalapeno and mozza. Now we got ourselves a party, a Tex-Mex tater tot pizza party! And if you don’t want to share this with the rest of your party then leave out some chips and dip and stash this tasty beast away for yourself. They’ll never know!
