Totchos are a thing. What are totchos, you ask? It’s like tater tots and nachos had a love child. We discovered them at Disney Social Media Moms in 2014 and have been making them at home ever since. Check out our Disney Totchos Recipe. They’re great as an appetizer, a snack, a meal, or to serve at parties. Thank you to Ricos Products for sponsoring this post. All opinions about how much I could basically drink nacho cheese every day are my own.
The Story of Totchos
I mentioned we discovered totchos at Disney Social Media Moms in Disneyland. They had a tasting party of different dishes, and my husband instantly fell in love. And he doesn’t often fall for foods like I do. My friend, Amiyrah, even started to call him ‘Totchos’ as a nickname, because I’m pretty sure he took her husband’s totchos at the event.
Then the love continues to when I surprised my husband for Father’s Day at Disney World by having Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort make his favorite dish, even though it wasn’t on the menu. The totchos love is strong.
Now you can make Totchos at home for your family! The thing I love about this recipe, is that it’s easy, kids can make it, and you can customize it however you want, but the cheese, the cheese is important.
Loaded Tater Tots
First you need tater tots. Does anyone else say, “Hey Napoleon, give me some of your tots,” when making tater tots? It can’t be just me!
Next load all your favorite toppings on your tater tots! The “official” Disney totchos called for pico de gallo, nacho cheese sauce, green onions, and pickled jalapeños. We’ve added a few more ingredients to ours.
We added bacon and sour cream, and if we’re in a time crunch, we’ll substitute pico de gallo for salsa. I cook bacon strips and then use a pizza cutter to quickly cut them into bits. Also the cheese makes the totchos! I love Ricos Cheese Sauces, because of the variety they offer, and you just heat and eat!
We used Ricos Cheddar Cheese Sauce for this recipe for the kids, but my husband’s favorite is Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce, and my fave is Ricos Queso Blanco Cheese Sauce. It reminds me of when I lived in Ecuador and ate all the queso blanco. Plus they’re Trans Fat FREE and made with no hydrogenated oils. You can also make a Totchos Bar for a party or gathering and have your guest choose what cheese and toppings they want!
And have you heard the new they are now serving loaded tater tots at Friar’s Nook in Magic Kingdom Park? I mean, I don’t want to take credit, but I did bring this awesome recipe to the attention of the Grand Floridian 😉
So what are you waiting for? Head to Walmart to find Ricos Cheese Sauces and the rest of the ingredients to make these amazing Disney Totchos! They’re so delicious, and have become a part of our family’s story.
