Spicy Thai Totchos

Spicy Thai Totchos – a unique flavor update on the classic nacho – spicy, bright, and fresh – crispy sweet potato tots and Thai flavors are great together!

_____________________________________________________________

Last month we flew down to L.A. for four days of fun with friends just before Christmas. We had front row seats to The Dan Band (extremely fun and I highly recommend!), we cry-laughed through the Anchorman premiere, and we sang Christmas carols in our fluffy robes to people in our hotel lobby. Super fun shenanigans and exactly what I needed.

We ate our way through L.A. – some fabulous food. I ordered totchos from a happy hour menu, and they were fantastic. Yes, tater tot nachos have been a well known and loved phenomenon for a while, but can you believe this was my first time having them?

…and I have been thinking of my own flavors ever since.

Spicy Thai Totchos

These nachos are spicy, but in a completely different way – they’ve been Thai’ed Up.

Crunchy bean sprouts, crispy sweet potato tater tots, brightness and green from the edamame and avocado. A liberal drizzle of spicy coconut almond sauce, a generous squeeze of fresh lime – dig in!

    This looks fantastic! I love sweet potato tater tots so I’m sure this is delicious.

    I wish I had been in town when you were here- would’ve loved to have hung out with you. Next time. :-)

    This looks so tasty and amazing but I would have to love it from afar because siracha is very high in sodium content.

  3. says

    Wow, I am loving the combination of flavors and textures in this recipe! And with “Thai” in the title, I know it’s going to be delicious. Thanks for linking up to Healthy Vegan Fridays!

    Kristina,
    I live under a rock (well, more precisely Ohio) because I’ve never seen totchos outside of the internets.
    I love how you Thai’d this up–I’ve got some Housemade sriracha, which is a locally produced sriracha sauce, and I want to make something worthy of it.
    Thanks!
