If you're looking for a new sandwich to try for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner, you need to give this chorizo tater tot grilled cheese a try.

I must admit, I was a bit skeptical at first because although I like all the ingredients separately, I wasn't so sure about the combination. The idea of putting tater tots, onion, chorizo (or veggie chorizo if that's your thing), and cheese all in one sandwich sounded like it could be a bit much.

What I discovered after tasting it was that the these ingredients make a pretty dope combination. And the best part is that you can make the meal in 15 minutes or less.
