In a large skillet, brown the beef and onion. Adding garlic towards the end of brown process & cook about 1 min. Drain.
 
Add green chiles, taco seasoning mix, black beans, corn and 2 cups cheese. Mix to combine. If your pan isn't big enough, you may need to mix it in a bowl.
Pour mixture to prepared 9x13 pan. Arrange the tater tots over the mixture in a single layer.
Pour the enchilada sauce over the top of the pan as evenly as possible.
 
Bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes or until the tater tots are nice and crispy. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top and return to the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
