Air Fried Tater Tots With Spicy Tomato Dip

These will be the best tater tots you’ve tried. Similar to french fries, the air fryer takes them to a whole new level. You can skip the dip if you want.

Tips

  • Instead of a box grater, you can use a food processor to shred the potatoes.
  • If the potato mixture is sticking to your hands, moisten them with some water while you are forming the tots.
  • Using a tablespoon to shape potatoes helps to measure the same sized tots.
  • Flour can be replaced with cornstarch. Use half as much cornstarch as you would flour because cornstarch has twice the thickening power of flour.
  • You can blend the dip completely smooth or leave it slightly chunky if you prefer.
