I love food. No, really, I lovvvvve food. I could eat all day if it were humanly possible, snacks including greasy bar food are right at the top of my list. We have a bar called Tap 30 that my husband and I occasionally frequent on a rare date night out. We’ve also been known to stop in for lunch while the kids are at school. I’m not a huge fan of craft beer or beer in general but their Moscow Mules are fantastic and the shiny copper mugs are my favorite. But I digress.

They have a menu item called ‘Totchos’ and they are to die for. No, really! They are the perfect bar food: tator tots, jalapenos, smoked gouda cheese, pepperoni and bacon. Yeah, all my favorite things combined! While I love eating Tap 30 totchos, we don’t go very often because, hello, taking 3 kids into a bar isn’t that fun. So, I made my own version at home!

They are seriously SO simply to make and mine are baked, not fried like Tap 30’s. When I told my friend Kari about them, she was very confused. So confused that I got confused. She had NO idea what totchos were OR why I was making them. Um, HELLO, they’re totchos!! I explained and I’m pretty sure I saw her shrugging her shoulders through our texts. Next time she visits, she’s definitely getting totchos!
