    I love this recipe. My 2 y/o twin boys are very picky and refuse to eat veggies. With this recipe, they don’t even realize they are eating green beans! So quick and easy and very tasty.

    This was amazing! I have been on a mission this week to empty my freezer and pantry by finding crock pot recipes for every night this week that take things I have on hand. It’s going really well and my family is happy as all get out! I made this today, the tater tot casserole, and oh man is it good! I didn’t have beans, so I used 1 can of corn, and I added some chicken stock to it, probably 3/4 cup or so to keep it moist. I also used ground turkey since I didn’t have beef. Really delicious and the entire family just loved it!

    So far it is just cooking. I do notice here you say don’t drain green beans and in receipe it says drained. Which is it? Little late since I paid more attention to these remarks so we will see…I didn’t drain beans or baby corn on cob I added.

  8. Barbara

    Can this be frozen? If so how??

    Sure, Phyllis!

  10. Phyllis

    Can you put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and put it in the fridge overnight to cook the next day?

  11. Ronda

    I am making it for dinner tonight.. I used corn instead of green beans and added a can of fiesta cheese soup with the cream of mushroom… I chopped up some onion and threw it in the meat…I also put more tator tots on top… Excited to eat it tonight it smells yummy!! :)

  12. Abby

    Thanks, girls! I tried this the other day and it turned out GREAT! Even my hubby and 1-year-old gobbled it up!

  13. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Absolutely, Abby! I don’t think you’ll have to adjust the time. Just check on it after 3 hours, but since it’s crockin’ on HIGH I think you’ll be good to go!

  14. Abby

    Could you use fresh green beans in this recipe instead of canned? How would you adjust the cook time?

  15. jerianne b.

    Made this tonight! Was delicious! Enough for the 5 of us, with no leftover (my hubby says thats good, means its a hit, coz everybody liked it )
    I didnt add the grean beans, thought it was weird.
    I was worried was going to be burnt/dry, it was neither!

    Hey Connie, you’re gonna have t o have a programmable slow cooker if it’s going to be on that long. The normal cook time is high for 3 hours, so you double the time if it’s going to be on low. I would cook low for 6 hours and let it switch over to warm for 3-4 hours til you get home. don’t brown you meat all the way either and start out with a bag of frozen tater tots. That’s all you need to do…

  19. Connie

    I would like to use this recipe during the week, but the crock would be home alone for 9 hours. What should I do? Add an additional can of Cream of Celery to the existing recipe? Help please!

    Frozen will work…holla!

  21. FG

    Do you need to thaw the tater tots, or just dump them in frozen?

  22. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Stephanie,
    You sure can. Corn would be good in this recipe.

  23. Stephanie

    Hi ladies!! Was just wondering if you could use a different canned veggie than the string green beans? Like maybe corn or something. As always love your recipes and your wonderful website!! Thanks ladies!!

  24. Kristen

    Yummo!

    Our family loved it. My 11 year old daughter has never liked Tator-Tot Casserole before. She went back for seconds the first night we had it. I switched out the mushroom soup for celery soup, end result was the same.

    I drained the green beans, then added one can of beefy mushroom soup. Also, I added some minced dried onion to the meat mixture. Very tasty!!

    You don’t drain the green beans. If you want, you can drain the beans and replace the liquid with chicken broth. That would be tasty.

  30. Monica Z.

    Are you draining the cans of green beans?

  31. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Dana, You can sub any kind of cream soup you like. Cr. of chicken or Cr. of celery…whatever you like

  32. Dana H.

    Can you substitute a different soup for the cream of mushroom?

  33. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    You can cover the top with tots but the majority needs to be on the bottom to soak up that gravy goodness… :)

  34. VA W.

    Can you put the tater tots on top so they don’t get soggy? Will they crisp on top?
