Sonic's Extreme Tater Tots Recipe

Make Sonic's Best Secret Menu Item at Home

Can you think of anything better than chili cheese fries? It's a tall order for sure, but Sonic's Extreme Tater Tots are a strong contender. Made with tater tots (instead of fries) and topped with chili, cheese, onions, pickled jalapeños, and — wait for it — ranch dressing, they're the crown jewel of the brand's secret menu. Salivating yet? We certainly were, so we knew we had to make our take on this ridiculously amazing side.
