One Pot Tater Tot Casserole

Calling this a tater tot casserole, but it’s really just a super tasty shepherds pie with crunchy tots on top 😋😋 like I said before, I’m ready for fall 🙃

Love a good one pot meal, but this ones good because you can customize it to meet your needs and it’s soooo flavorful – I mean finger licking good!! As always, use ground chicken or turkey and sub cauliflower tots if necessary!!

If you don’t mind a good comfort meal year round, definitely try this one ASAP, if not keep it in your arsenal for a couple months, however, it’s feeling pretty good here in Texas right about now!! 🙏🏻
