Easy Cheesy Must Have Keto Tator Tots

Are you new to the Keto diet? I actually am! Although many of my friends and family have been doing Keto for a while now and they all seem to love it. I decided to try and put together a Keto Nacho recipe so I could enjoy one of my favorite foods while still doing Keto. This recipe takes a little longer than usual because most of it is done completely from scratch. Keep this in mind when you are preparing to make it. I promise the wait is totally worth it because these are so, so good!
After your tots are done add the beef and cheese. Pour the nacho sauce on top and it is ready to go!
