Kim’s Chicken Bacon Ranch Loaded Tots


  • Frozen tater tots  (I used 1/2 bag for Rick and me, and we ate them all.)
  • Bacon
  • Chicken thighs
  • Onion
  • Toppings:
    • Cheddar or colby/jack shredded cheese
    • Sour cream or ranch dip
    • Ranch dressing (if you chose plain sour cream above)
    • Jalapenos or green chiles
    • Salsa and/or hot sauce
    • Green onions, cherry tomatoes, banana peppers, cilantro also would be good..but I didn’t have any of those.


  1. Prepare a pound of bacon, even if you’re only feeding two people because you can never have enough bacon. 
  2. Prepare the frozen tater tots in oven as described on package.I did both of these on separate cookie sheets in the oven at the same time…thus creating the bacon haze.
  3. While baking those ingredients above, brown chicken thighs with onion in a skillet.  I was using some meat that Mitch had frozen to  sous vide, so he had them nicely seasoned.  If you are using naked thighs of course add salt/pepper/other seasonings to taste.  I think a ranch dressing envelope would be good and easy.
  4. Once everything is done, load each of your plates, as you wish, with the potatoes, bacon, chicken/onion, cheese and various other toppings so it is a big yummy mountain of food.
  5. Enjoy!
