  • pinch of salt and pepper


  • 2 avocados
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or pressed
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper

Cheese Sauce

  • 5 oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 4 ounces cheddar jack cheese, grated


  • 4 burger buns

Totcho Burgers

We love working tater tots into any meal and on a burger they especially shine. We love using the guac on top of the burger to anchor the tots, and then pouring cheese sauce on top to really seal the pile of tots in place, that way when you eat it the burger stays secure. We used sour cream on the bun to emulate the totcho/nacho flavors, but feel free to use your favorite condiment.


Step 1
Bake the Tots

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Put the tots on a baking sheet and toss with oil, salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes until crispy and browned.

Step 2
Make the Guac

Remove the skin and seeds from the avocados and place the flesh in a large bowl. Add in the lime juice, garlic and salt and pepper and stir/mash to combine. Cover with plastic wrap so the wrap is touching the top of the guac. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use.

Step 3
Make the Cheese Sauce

Make the cheese sauce – Whisk the corn starch into the evaporated milk. Pour this mixture into a small sauce pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring often. As it comes to a simmer you will see it thicken up. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese. Continue to stir and the residual heat should melt the cheese, but if not, you can put it on low heat, just keep an eye on it because it will separate if it gets too hot. Hold this over as low of a heat as you can until ready to use, adding a splash of milk if it gets too thick. (“alt” milk will work here if that is all you have.)

Step 4
Cook Your Burgers

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Toast the buns on the grill first for about one minute. Remove from heat and set aside. Smear about 1 tablespoon of sour cream on each bottom bun.

Next, grill the burgers about 5 minutes on the first side, until you start to see the juices collecting on the top of the burger. Flip and add the cheese slices. Cook another 5 minutes until it is cooked through.

Step 5
Top and Serve

Put the burgers on the bottom buns, then spread on the guac. Pile up some tots, then pour on the cheese sauce. Finally top with a few jalapeño slices, add on the top bun, and serve.
