Notes

What sides go with tater tot casserole?

This really can be a meal on its own. But if you want a side dish to go with this Mexican vegetarian tater tot casserole a salad or other veggie-packed side dishes go great with it.
You could serve this Tomato Cucumber Salad or a Mixed Berry Fruit Salad to lighten things up a bit. 

Can I freeze this tater tot casserole?

I actually have not tried freezing this recipe, but I think it would work well. It would be a delicious make-ahead meal that you could pop in the oven. I would, however, package the cheese, olives, and cilantro in their own container so you can throw those ingredients on at the end.

Do I need to thaw the tater tots for this casserole?

Nope! And actually, I wouldn’t recommend it. The tots would get mushy and start to fall apart if you let them thaw too much. Just put them in frozen. They will cook perfectly that way.
