1 (32 ounce) package frozen potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®)

1 pound lean ground beef

2 ½ teaspoons Bourbon Barrel Smoked Chili Powder

1 teaspoon Bourbon Barrel Smoked Paprika

1 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Pepper

1 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Salt

½ teaspoon onion powder

½ cup water

2 cups Mexican cheese blend, shredded

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup black olives, chopped

1/2 cup pickled jalapeno pepper slices

1/4 cup chopped scallions, for garnish

1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread potato nuggets out onto a baking sheet. Bake until nuggets are golden brown and crisp, about 25 minutes.

2 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 7-8 minutes. Add chili powder, smoked paprika, pepper, salt and onion powder and cook for 2 minutes more. Add water, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until liquid reduces, about 5 minutes.

3 Set oven rack to highest position and turn broiler on to hi. Arrange

potato nuggets on an oven-proof platter and top with ground beef.

Scatter shredded Mexican cheese over the top.

4 Cook potato nuggets under the broiler until cheese melts, 1 to 3 minutes.

Whisk sour cream and lime juice together in a bowl. Garnish totchos with tomatoes, black olives, jalapenos, avocado, sour cream mixture, scallions, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
