COOKS NOTES:

Instead of the onion and the rest of the ingredients down to salt, I just used a sloppy joe mix packet, tomato paste and water (as per the directions on the packet). The casserole is good and quite filling.

This recipe is very, very, good. I did add a larger can of tomato sauce, some liquid smoke, and layer the meat and cheese mixture over the tator tots. You can add most anything you like to this dish and it would still be a wonderful dinner. Being from Texas, I also added some hot peppers and salsa. Thanks....
