Why You’ll Love This Totcho Recipe
Disney World has so many amazing entrees, snacks, and desserts available at the Parks. Unfortunately, most of us cannot be at Disney World all of the time, no matter how much we might want to.
But, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience Disney magic right in your own home with this recipe for Woody’s Lunch Box Totchos! It’s a copycat version of the loaded tater tots available at Toy Story Land.
These totchos are extremely easy to make, and they’re sure to hit the spot every single time with the whole family. The warm and crispy tater tots are topped with melty cheese, chili, Fritos, and queso dip. Plus, they’re completed with a sprinkle of green onions and dollop of sour cream.
You won’t be able to resist the comfort food goodness that comes from this recipe. Have your family gather around the table for a movie night snack or serve it up at your next gathering. No matter what the occasion, Woody’s Lunch Box Totchos will always be a hit!
What Are Totchos?
Totchos are a lot like traditional nachos, only instead of tortilla chips, you use Tater Tots. The tater tots are cooked until crispy and then topped with all your favorite nacho toppings. It’s a delicious combination of salty, cheesy, and crunchy flavors that is sure to be a hit with everyone and make the ultimate gameday snack!
Where can you get Totchos at Disney World?
These loaded Tater Tots can be purchased inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Woody’s Lunch Box inside Toy Story Land.
“Totchos” are available for lunch and dinner for a price of $8.99. Here is the description from Disney’s menu:
Potato barrels coated with Beef and Bean Chili, Shredded Cheese and signature Queso with Tomatoes and Corn Chips finished with Sour Cream and a sprinkle of Green Onions.
Sounds delicious, right? The homemade version of this snack is an easy recipe and can be created with all pre-made ingredients, but I highly recommend making this Disney World Chili to top the tater tots. It is so good!
If you’re looking for more Toy Story Land recipes, you should definitely make the homemade version of the Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich also from Woody’s Lunch Box.
*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Frozen Tater Tots: These can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. Frozen french fries or even hash browns can be used as well.
Fritos Corn Chips: I love using Fritos for this recipe because of the extra crunch they give. But any other brand of tortilla chips can be substituted.
Beef & Bean Chili: Use any pre-made chili or make this Disney World Chili! Black beans or refried beans are great substitutes for chili.
Queso Dip: This can also be found in the grocery store. Use your favorite brand.
Shredded Cheddar Cheese: Shredded cheese is always a great topping for nachos! The best varieties are cheddar, Mexican cheese blend, Colby Jack, or even Pepper Jack.
Sour Cream: This adds a delicious creaminess to the dish.
Chopped Green Onions: The perfect finishing touch.
