  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  • Canned black olives sliced and drained
  • Red onion peeled and diced

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cook ground beef and onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until meat browned and onions have softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Pour beef mixture into a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish. Top with tater tots, being sure to spread them out into a single layer.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheddar cheese all over the tater tots. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes. The casserole is done when the tots are crispy, cheese is melted, and filling is bubbling.
