Who doesn’t love Sonic? After all, they are America’s Drive Inn. They make so many delicious treats that you love. They make Ocean Water, delicious Onion Rings, and so many other great menu items. You can make many of these restaurant favorites at home.

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

You can buy tater tots at the grocery store, or you may even want to make them at home with this recipe. I like to cook my tater tots in one of three ways, I heat them in my oven, or I cook them up in my air fryer, or I will use my deep fryer.

The other ingredients you will need to make Sonic Extreme Tots are shredded cheddar cheese, chopped white onion, sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, ranch salad dressing, and chili. You could add more toppings to this if desired. It is completely up to you.

For the chili, if I have some homemade chili left over I may use that, if not I would use a can of Hormel brand chili with no beans.
