I really liked this take on the normal shepherd's pie. I'm going to try Rotel or spicier salsa next time though!
What you need:
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/2 cup sliced green onions, divided
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 3/4 tsp. cumin
- 1 can Mexicorn, drained
- 1 pouch loaded mashed potatoes**
- 1 1/3 cups water**
- 2 tbsp. butter**
- 1 cup milk**
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 medium tomato, cut into thin wedges (I just diced it up)
- Tortilla chips, if desired
Meanwhile, bring water and butter to a boil; then remove from heat. Stir in milk and potatoes pouch. Let stand for 1 minute and then beat with a fork until smooth.
**I make homemade mashed potatoes with butter and milk because I hate boxed instant mashed potatoes.
potatoes over the corn and spread. Then sprinkle with cheese and 1/4
cup green onions. (I did that part backwards - oops!). Cover and cook
for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Arrange tomato wedges in a spoke fashion over potatoes - or if you are lazy like me, sprinkle them all over the top. Garnish with chips around the edges, if desired.
