Crockpot Pizza Tater Tot Casserole ***

This was a winner for us, but it was also kind of a no-brainer. I love almost anything with tater tots (except for the regular old-school Tater Tot Casserole, oddly enough), and it's pretty hard to go wrong where pizza is involved. We love the Crockpot Pizza, so I basically put the same toppings in this one. I went with onions, green peppers, black olives, and mushrooms. SOOO good.  I used ground turkey for this one, just because I had some in the freezer to use up. I am totally making this one again, though. Yum!
