  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange tots in a single layer on parchment lined pan and bake for approx 25-28 minutes until cripsy and golden.
  3. While tots are baking, prepare salsa cheese dip.
  4. Freshly grate block of cheddar cheese (pre-shredded cheese won't work here)! Go ahead and measure everything else for the sauce.
  5. Warm the milk in the microwave for 30-40 seconds and set aside. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Once melted, add flour and whisk into butter vigorously as it becomes bubbly and foamy. Continue to cook and whisk constantly for about a minute to cook out the flour taste.

  7. Next slowly add grated cheddar in 3 batches, stirring it in until the cheese is fully melted. Keep the pot off the heat so the cheese doesn't overhead and turn gritty.
  8. Add Cocina Fresca Medium Salsa and stir until combined.
  9. Pull tots from the oven, cover with salsa cheese sauce and then add additional toppings such as tomatoes. lettuce, sour cream and anything else you want.
