Recipe by: Oklahoma City Public Schools

Operator Notes:
I wanted to create a recipe that was affordable (using mainly commodity items), easy to prepare and packed with flavor. I also wanted to create this recipe so that the spice factor could be adjusted to fit each demographic. At Oklahoma City Public Schools our sites are incredibly diverse in culture. This was an easy fix with the use of chipotle in adobo and the option of serving with Pico de gallo or salsa (commodity or freshly made). There are many options with this particular recipe, kids love choices, this recipe gives them that freedom. Our kids LOVE tater tots! The golden caramelized tater tots add yet another layer of flavor for the kids. And... Who doesn't LOVE tater tots and bacon? Together a smash hit!
