Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweaked it to make it my own - loved it! Made this for my family and one of my son's friends (age 10) last night - loved it! I added spinach to the ground hamburger to add some nutrients. I used green beans instead of "mixed veggies." Also, we like potato crowns instead of tots. The TS wild rice soup gave a unique texture and flavor that you don't typically find in a Tater Tot Hotdish - will def make again!
