(I grew up with this one, and now it is my daughter's favorite)

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. onion soup mix

Combine onion soup mix with ground beef, brown, and drain if needed (I use sirloin and don't usually need to drain). Place in bottom of casserole dish and cover with cream of chicken soup. Top with layer of Tater Tots placed closely together. Bake in 350 degree oven (uncovered) for 35-45 minutes. Cover with grated cheese during last few minutes. Serves 4
