Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef (ground turkey would also work well here- you can also do ground Veggie crumbles to make it Vegetarian)

1  32 oz. package Tater Tots

¾  cup Hood sour cream (use light for less calories)

¼  cup milk (use low fat or skim for less calories)

½ cup chicken broth

1 ½ cup shredded Colby Jack cheese

1 ½ tsp garlic salt

1 medium onion

2-3 tsps. oil mix (90% veg oil, 10% olive oil)

salt and pepper to tast

Directions:

Thaw tater tots.

Dice onion finely. (I have been known to mince mine- same flavor, but if your kids don’t enjoy the texture of onions, the smaller they are, the less likely they are to notice them in the dish)

Grease a 9×13 baking pan.

Preheat oven to 350

1. Saute onions in oil mix  until they begin to become translucent
