- 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
- 8 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp. chili powder

- Pre-heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo, ground beef and onion. Cook until meat is cooked through and beef is no longer pink, breaking up mixture as it cooks. Drain meat and set aside.

- Stir in the Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican. Place frozen tater tots into liquid. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove pan from oven and top with Sargento® Reserve Series™ 18-Month Aged Cheddar Cheese and reserved chorizo and beef mixture. Bake an additional 20-25 minutes or until mixture is set.
- For topping: In a medium bowl, combine avocado and remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture over the top of the baked casserole and serve.
