Hotdish and Crock-pot cheesy chicken ranch tater tot casserole are tater tot casserole recipes. Begin the hotdish by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Heat 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add one finely chopped medium yellow onion. Cook the onion pieces in the oil for about 15 minutes until they soften and start browning. Add 1 pound of 80 percent lean ground beef to the skillet. Cook thoroughly for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Put the beef mixture into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Thaw 2 cups of frozen cut green beans and 1 3/4 cups of corn kernels. Sprinkle the vegetables evenly across the beef mix. Make another ingredient layer from two 10-ounce cans of cream of mushroom soup. Top the dish with 1 pound of frozen of tater tots.
Bake uncovered for one hour. The recipe yields eight servings. The total preparation time for this easy recipe is about 1 hour and 25 minutes, but most of it is cooking time.
