Mexi-Tots for Cinco de Mayo -Tator Tots with Mexican Dipping Sauce

Serving these Tator Tots with a Mexican Flavored Dipping Sauce would be an easy Cinco de Mayo treat that's well received. At least it was well received here any way:@) This is also a nice way to use up some leftover salsa. I used smoked paprika but think chipotle powder would be really good too.
And ya might want to tuck this one away for football season too folks... just sayin'.

Tator Tots with Mexican Dipping Sauce
1/2 C salsa
1/2 C sour cream
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp smoked paprika or chipotle powder
Tator Tots
Chili powder
Hot sauce-optional
  1. Mix salsa, sour cream, garlic and onion powder, cumin and paprika/chipotle powder. Cover and let rest in fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Place Tator Tots on baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with chili powder.
  3. Bake as directions on package indicate.
  4. Sprinkle hot sauce on top of dip before serving if desired-I desired:@)
Open a cerveza and let the fiesta begin!
