Sonic Extreme Tots are tater tots that are loaded with chili, cheese, jalapenos slices, and so much more. These are a great change from nachos.

Loaded tater tots is one of my favorite comfort foods. Nothing soothes the soul like feasting on potatoes, chili, and cheese with a little jalapeno heat and some ranch to cool it down.

Recipe Ingredients

Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Tater tots
  • Hormel chili (no beans)
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Chopped white onions
  • Pickled jalapeno slices
  • Ranch salad dressing

Ingredient Notes and Tips

You can get tater tots at the grocery store or make homemade tater tots. Store-bought tater tots can be cooked in an oven, air fryer, or deep fryer.

If you have some leftover homemade chili, you may use that. If not, use a can of Hormel brand chili with no beans. Or with beans if you want them in the dish too.

You could add more toppings to this if desired. It is completely up to you.
