Jumbo’s Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Hotdish


Some call it casserole, some call it a throw-together.  In the Northland, where we’re from, we call them Hotdish.  In Minnesota, the Dakotas, Wisconsin and Iowa, you can find these delectable dishes in small-town church basements, homes, and even some high-end restaurants.  Each one contains a combination of some of your favorite items, and the Jumbo’s Tater Tot Hotdish is no exception.  Make it for your family tonight, and your family will have a new favorite.

What you’ll need:

1 – 14 oz container Jumbo’s Original or Jalapeno Sloppy Joe Sauce

1 – 1.5 lbs lean ground beef

(Optional) ¼ Cup Chopped onion

1 bag (32 oz) Ore-Ida Tater Tots

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (8 oz)

How to make it:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 9”X 13” glass baking dish with cooking spray
