Most ballpark food, such as the fried bacon on a stick, should come with a don't-try-this-at-home warning label. But one of the Texas Rangers' new concessions items, the Holland Hot Tot'chos, can absolutely be made at home.
Rangers writer Evan Grant and I played sous chefs while one of Delaware North Sportservice's chefs whipped up the dish in the video above.
The Holland Hot Tot'chos are named, of course, for pitcher Derek Holland. His nickname is the Dutch Oven, and his nacho-tater tots come with a "dutch oven" on the side filled with queso hollandaise.
We all agreed that Holland also seems a little spicy himself, so it's fitting that this dish is a little on the hot side.
Here's your order of ingredients:
- First, load deep-fried tater tots into a bowl.
- Next, add a drizzle of buffalo sauce.
- Sprinkle cooked fajita steak (or chicken), mixed with sauteed bell peppers, on top.
- Give it a nice layer of pickled jalapeños.
- Then you're in for more buffalo drizzle (fo shizzle).
- The spicy queso hollandaise comes on the side. If you aren't a hollandaise pro, heat up Velveeta's queso blanco for an inexpensive at-home option.
You'll have to watch the video to see what we thought of the ballpark's new nacho-tots.
