Cook the ground beef until fully browned. Drain and set aside.

Let's Make It!

Add the onion and green pepper to the skillet and cook until softened. Then add in the garlic.

Add the ground beef back to the skillet. Add the rest of the ingredients for the beef layer. Spread into a prepared baking dish.

Layer the tater tots on top and bake for 40-45 minutes. Add the cheese and bake for another 5 minutes, then enjoy!

Can I Make This Ahead Of Time?

Yes! Prepare the sloppy joe filling up to 3 days ahead and refrigerate in an airtight container. Assemble the casserole with frozen tater tots when ready to bake and serve. Bake as directed, but add an additional 5-10 minutes to cooking time.
