Get the BGE dialed into right around 350 degrees.

In a skillet, throw in the ground beef and onion.

Cook until the ground beef is done.

Once done, be sure to drain all the excess grease from the skillet.

Add water to the ground beef and onion.

Add the packet of taco seasoning.

Mix together well and simmer.

Once the taco meat is done transfer it to a 9 x 11 inch pan. Add the corn (after it is drained).

Add the fiesta nacho cheese soup.

Mix everything together well and create an even layer in the bottom of the 9×11 inch pan.

Place an even layer of tater tots on top of the ground beef, corn & nacho cheese mixture.

Confirm the BGE is rolling right around 350 degrees.

Place the tater tot taco casserole on the BGE.

Let the smoked tater tot taco casserole cook on the Big Green Egg for 35-45 minutes, until the tater tots are done. Pull, serve and enjoy!
