Buffalo Cheeseburger Tatortot Casserole

A spicy version of a childhood favorite!

Tatortot hotdish was a staple in my childhood and food bloggers have created some amazing variations that I was so happy to collect and try. This one doesn't have any veggies and there is some buffalo sauce and cheddar cheese mixed into it versus the cream of chicken/mushroom and green beans of the traditional version that I'm used to. We all really loved it but it's got buffalo sauce in it, so what's not to love.

What you need:

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chillies (Rotel)
  • 3/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 bag (28 oz) frozen tatortots


  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and ground beef. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, crumbling beef as it cooks.
  2. Drain grease and then add diced tomatoes with green chillies, buffalo sauce, chili powder, and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour into a 9x13-inch pan and top with tatortots.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup of cheese.
  6. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
