Taters Ole'

My mother-in-law, the recipe guru, put this one together on her own with intent of making her own "copy-cat" recipe from Taco John's Potato Ole's.  The basic recipe is easy and can be topped with your own likings.  Ole'!  [o-lay]  =)

1 15oz can refried beans
1-2 lbs prepared taco meat (depending on how meaty you like it)
1 small can of diced green chiles or 1 10oz can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles), I've also used 1c of salsa...it's very flexible.
2lb bag of tater tots or tater rounds
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Sliced olives
Shredded lettuce

1.  Spread refried beans evenly in the bottom of a 9x13 pan
2.  Layer taco meat, green chiles (or salsa) and tater tots over the beans (in that
3.  Bake according to the tater tot directions.  Usually 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
4.  Remove from oven, sprinkle cheese over hot tater tots and bake for another 5-7
     minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly
5.  Top with your favorite mexi-toppings =)

Goes great with a side of yellow hominy cooked with butter and salt.  Mmmmm!
