Ultimate Sweet Potato Totchos with Chipotle Aioli www.climbinggriermountain.com I

I am flipping giddy today.

Like jazz hands mixed with the Carlton dance excited. Isn’t that quite the visual?

I don’t know what it is, but I effing love tater tots. These golden fried potato gems just melt my heart. I swear I have a healthy relationship with food, but for some reason, I am completely smitten with tater tots.

Of all the fried side foods, tater tots rule for several reasons: 1) they stay crunchy unlike french fries. I swear if you don’t eat french fries in the first thirty seconds of being served they turn into major soggy town. 2) tater tots accumulate the correct ratio of dipping sauce to fried potato, which makes for easier eating. 3) tater tots are much sturdier when ingredients are piled high.

Well, have I convinced you to join the tater tot bandwagon?

If not, then today’s recipe might just put you over the edge. Seriously, this may be my favorite tater tot recipe of all time. There’s nothing better then perfectly golden cubes topped with chili, cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo, jalapenos, sour cream, and more cheese. I could eat these totchos for breakfast (slap an egg on it), lunch or dinner.

So, what are you waiting for? Do the Carlton Jazz Hand Shuffle and dive into these totchos.
