Ingredients

  • 16 oz bag Frozen Cauliflower Veggie Tots or tater tots
  • 1 C (112g) Fat Free Shredded Cheddar or your choice of cheese

Chili Dog Filling

  • 3 Turkey Hot Dogs I used Johnsonville Turkey and Cheddar Sausages
  • 1 C (100g) Yellow Onion chopped
  • 15 oz can Black Beans
  • 8 oz can Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F and spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Add the frozen tots to the baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes or according to the directions on the tots packaging. (If you're using different tots, adjust the oven temperature accordingly.)

  6. Cover the tots with the chili dog mixture and shredded cheese. Bake for an additional 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese. (Be careful to not burn the fat free cheese. Full fat cheese melts better and can withstand a bit longer in the oven.)
