Bacon Wrapped Tater Tot Bloody Mary Shots

I woke up this morning and decided I would do no carbs for the rest of the week since my skinny jeans are cutting off the circulation to my legs from all the donuts, cheese, and chocolate I have been eating lately. Then Karen came in with this bacon tater tot recipe and I decided life wasn't worth living if I couldn't eat carbs for a couple days so I ate 7 of these and dipped them in my bloody Mary shot glass with extra Franks Hot Sauce. Followed up by a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I then unbuttoned my pants so I could write this blog post and not pass out.

These bacon tots are worth every calorie, so make them for your next party, or Memorial Day BBQ, or just because. They are also equally as delicious if you eat them cold with a splash of hot sauce while standing with the fridge door open. 

Just saying.
