This season, OZARKA® is celebrating the many facets of Texas high school football including community pride, homecoming and tailgating. I’m thrilled to partner with OZARKA to bring tailgating to life and share one of my favorite tailgate recipes. Our Tailgate Chopped Tater Tots are insanely delicious and the perfect party food for your football gatherings. Whether you are cheering on your favorite team from the couch at home or you’re tailgating in the parking lot, don’t be surprised if these loaded tots become a part of your Friday night football traditions!
I love football season and I especially love combining it with one of my ultimate passions, entertaining. It gives me an excuse to celebrate and bring friends together to enjoy delicious food. I’m always looking for fun new ways to up our tailgate game. I knew I wanted something that was easy to eat and portable so our guest could enjoy the game from anywhere.
This recipe is super easy and features true Texas flavors, like chopped brisket. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover brisket.
Load your tater tots in individual party trays, not only does it make it easy for your guest to mingle we love them because they match our teams colors!
Next, smother the tater tats with spicy queso. Use your favorite homemade recipe, or in the interest of time you can use a store bought version. Now, load it up with the chopped brisket and add jalapenos for an extra spicy kick.
These Tailgate Tater Tots are so good. Trust me, this is a tradition you’re going to want to keep long after football season has come and gone!
