Potato overload but no worries, the tater tots used are gluten-free as well as the sloppy Joe sauce which makes this a gluten-free recipe. The tater tots are yummy by itself but this bright idea of mixing it with ground beef and cheese topped with the sloppy Joe sauce and putting it in the oven is just irresistibly mouth-watering. Thanks for this recipe which I'm sure will be popular among both kids and adults alike.

Oh my gosh... Tater Tots. YUM. I made this the other night and my kids loved it! It was such a quick and easy weeknight dinner.

This recipe seems like it would be super easy to make during the week, and I really like the Tater Tots and vegetables combo.

I never think to do anything with Tater Tots except eat them, so a recipe that uses them is pretty clever. We love sloppy Joes, and have an easy, homemade recipe that I'll use when I make this casserole. What fun!

I agree that it could use a little less sauce, but I think it worked well with the tater tots. I also enjoyed the added flavors of the vegetables.

I wasn't a huge fan. The casserole had a strong barbecue sauce flavor. I'd use not so much sauce in the dish.

This casserole was really flavorful! I loved the chunks of peppers and onions.
