How to make Tater Tot Sloppy Joe Casserole

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.

Step 2: Combine ketchup, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato sauce in a medium bowl. Whisk until well-blended.

Step 3: Place a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the chopped garlic for a minute or until it turns light brown and aromatic.

Step 4: Toss in the ground beef and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste. When the beef turns brown, drain the excess oil.

Step 5: Transfer the sauce into the skillet with the beef and beans. Stir until the beef and beans are fully coated with sauce.

Step 6: Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the sauce is a little thick.

Step 7: Spread the mixture and form a layer. Add 1 cup of cheese on top of the mixture.

Step 8: Add the tater tots on top and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.

Step 9: Place the skillet inside the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the tots turn golden brown, crispy, and the cheese is melted.

Step 10: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
