Fight Off Sunday Scaries with This Healthy (and Delicious!) Take on Tater Tot Nachos

While good-for-you watermelon collagen smoothies and no-bake cocoa whey cookies have proven to satisfy dessert and wellness enthusiasts’ cravings alike — ahem, have you seen our Instagram-worthy recipes? — sometimes all we really need after a long week is a big ol’ plate of comfort food to help alleviate those Sunday Scaries a.k.a the anxiety we all feel when the weekend winds down.

If you’re looking to keep your healthy-eating lifestyle in check while also occasionally giving into those savory cravings, consider this collagen lover’s take on beloved hearty classic, tater tot nachos, and its corresponding buffalo sauce.

Tater Tot Nachos with Collagen Buffalo Sauce

Our recipe skips the sour cream and instead dresses cauliflower tater tots in a buffalo sauce that calls for Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, apple cider vinegar, hot sauce and more ingredients you wouldn’t be surprised to already find in your kitchen. Of course, traditional tater tots, made from potatoes, work perfectly fine, but if you’re looking for a low-carb alternative, cauliflower can serve as your go-to base. Add even more flavor with cilantro, yellow bell peppers, shredded cheese and onions as toppings.
