Karyn’s Totchos

April 27, 2020

This recipe was submitted by Karyn Cooper, Director of Programs and Services at The AIDS Network as a part of our A Taste at Home campaign.

This recipe takes the deliciousness of tacos and pairs it with tater tots.  Not only is it delicious, but also a super easy meal that can be adjusted depending on your preferences.


Prepare tater tots according to package directions.  The crispier, the better.

Prepare the toppings.  My preferences are:

  • Meat (pulled pork, ground beef, or whatever you like)
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Diced onions
  • Diced avocado
  • Diced peppers
  • Beans
  • Hot peppers
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Grated cheese


When the tater tots are ready, place some in a bowl, top with toppings and enjoy!

While we may not be able to come together for an evening of great food and supporting our cause, great food can still bring us together, and so we are sharing with you the favourite recipes of our team, volunteers and community partners! Over the next few weeks we will be adding to this virtual cookbook to help inspire you in your own kitchen, and we hope our A Taste at Home campaign bring you the comfort these recipes bring our contributors. While we may be physically distant, we can still come together in a spirit of sharing and giving.
