I wish that this casserole existed when I was a kid, it’s meaty, cheesy, creamy, and covered in tater tots. What’s not to love? This recipe is pretty straightforward, but the vegetables are flexible. We liked the ease and taste of roasted red peppers, but you could use cooked green beans or frozen corn. If you’d prefer those ingredients instead, feel free to sub in an equal amount for the red peppers. I may not have eaten this as a kid, but luckily as an adult I have full autonomy to make this dish whenever I please – be it with corn, green beans, red peppers, or without veggies at all. 

Note: to schedule this cook you will need to wait 30 minutes for the broiler to cool before refrigerating. If you are short on time, you can sauté the beef, onion powder, salt and pepper for 5 minutes in a pan with 2 tsp vegetable oil until browned, then proceed as directed.

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: 2 hours and 25 minutes
  • Print


  • 1 lb 90% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of condensed mushroom or chicken soup
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (28 ounce) bag of frozen tater tots


1) Divide 1 lb beef, 1 chopped onion, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, and ½ tsp pepper between 2 Suvie pans. Insert pans into your Suvie and broil for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.

2) While the beef broils, drain and roughly chop the roasted red peppers. Once the broil step has finished, remove pans from your Suvie and drain excess oil from the beef.

3) Stir the cream of mushroom soup into the beef mixture and then scatter the roasted red peppers over the beef.

4) Sprinkle each pan with cheese and then top with tater tots. Insert pans into your Suvie, input settings, and cook now or schedule.

Question on cook time: The overall recipe says it has a 2 hour, 25 minute cook time in the header. I’m only seeing one hour, 17 minutes here. Ten minute broil early in the recipe, one hour slow cook, and then a 7 minute broil to brown the tater tots. Where’s the remaining time, and what settings are needed?
Also, are there any viable non-dairy substitutes for the condensed soup? I can use fake cheese, but “cream of” soups are pretty deadly to me.

Just received my Suvie system. Trying to find recipes I can use in my new oven, why can’t I print from here?

Loved it! Used to create a very similar meal like this many years ago for our children! When I saw this recipe, I jumped at the chance to create it. Super great! Thanks!!!

Very easy and tasty recipe. It was actually the first ‘non-meal-kit’ thing I prepared in my Suvie. But it took a LOT longer than the times listed.l.well over an hour more. That was discouraging.

This recipe only tells me the cook time for the bottom shelf and not the top. Can someone explain why this is? Also, when I push the slow click button, does it automatically just take two hours when I put one hour in because of the time it takes for it to heat?

This was very good! If you lay out the tater tots like the picture, you need a little more than the recipe calls for. I can see where you could make many variations of this, as the recipe notes. Thank you for sharing!
