"Great shepherd's pie with a kick. It's prepared with a blend of Mexican spices. Adjust seasonings according to your personal taste. You can also spice up the mashed potatoes if you like."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9 inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender enough to pierce with a fork; drain. Mash by hand using a potato masher or sturdy whisk. Mix in butter, milk, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir until softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and ground beef and cook until meat loses its pink color. Season with seasoned salt and taco seasoning. Add peas and corn and stir until blended.
  4. Pour beef and vegetable mixture into prepared baking dish. Cover with mashed potatoes.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until potatoes are golden and beef and vegetable mixture is hot and bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes.

I didn't have any potatoes, so I topped it with cornbread batter mixed with cheese and chopped fresh jalapenos and left out the peas. The gang loved it.

I used black beans instead of peas and sprinkled cheese on top. I used regular seasoned salt, which was fine, but it would have been better had the dish been more spicy...maybe crushed red pepp...

Added black beans, skipped the peas and added some enchilada sauce to the meat mixture. Spiced up the mashed potatoes by mixing in a little salsa. My family loved it!

I've tried this recipe as directed and switching the veggies to the "Mexicana blend" (corn, chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes, with black beans). I've used mashed potatoes and rosemary garli...

This was good. I used can corn because I hate the taste of frozen. I also don't use packaged seasonings so I used 1 Tbsp of cumin and chili powder and a pinch of crushed red pepper flake. I also...
