Form the tater tots to the desired size.
Cook the tots in batches in a heavy duty skillet coated with oil for 3 to 4 minutes or to minimize the fat content, bake the tots in the oven at 500 degrees F. until brown on the outside and soft on the inside. Do not stack the tots while cooking.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Just mix all the dipping sauce ingredients together and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat. It’s better if you make the dipping sauce in advance (1 hour) so that all flavors have time to mix well together.
