  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Arrange potato nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake potato nuggets in the preheated oven until golden and heated through, 24 to 26 minutes.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir water and taco seasoning mix into beef; cook and stir until liquid is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Pour cheese sauce into a microwave-safe bowl; heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Continue heating in 15-second intervals until hot, stirring between intervals.
  6. Spread potato nuggets on a serving plate. Top with meat, cheese sauce, sour cream, onion, and jalapeno slices.

This is my idea of the perfect comfort food. I love tater tots, and adding veggies and taco meat is genius. Surprised I didn't think of this myself. ;) I put diced red onions, green and black olives, diced tomatoes, banana pepper rings, jalapeño rings, shredded cheddar cheese, and taco meat on my tots. A good way to use the "rest of's" in the fridge.
