Chipotle-Ranch Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Doesn’t everybody love Tater Tots?? Especially when combined with bacon, sausage, eggs and cheese?? This breakfast casserole is a KEEPER recipe and my family loved the flavor of the chipotle ranch dressing that I added - such good kick! This is one of my favorite breakfast casseroles to make ahead of time, too.
