Ingredients (10)


  • 1 lb. (about 3 cups) frozen Tater Tots
  • 2 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • vegetable oil, for brushing


Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 225ºF.
  • Step 2
    In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the Tater Tots until slightly thawed, about 4 minutes on high heat. Using a rubber spatula, lightly mash the Tater Tots. In a separate bowl, mix in Hidden Valley® Sriracha Ranch®, hot sauce and egg until well combined. Stir in flour and cayenne pepper until well combined; batter should be firm and hold its shape.
  • Step 3
    Heat waffle iron until hot. Brush the iron with vegetable oil. Spoon about ⅓ cup Tater Tots mixture into the waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer prepared waffles to a sheet tray and keep warm in the oven. Repeat until all the waffles are made.
  • Step 4
    In a small bowl, whisk together the Hidden Valley® Sriracha Ranch® with the lime juice. Drizzle the sauce on the waffles. Garnish with cilantro.
  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too spicy While our family does like spicy foods, we found this dish to be a little too hot. We did enjoy the preparation of the tot and will try this with the original instead of the sriracha.
