Shepherd’s Pie topped with mashed potatoes and melted cheese

I love pie. I love meat pies. But making the crust can take some time. This recipe is so good and so easy. Shepherd’s Pie has no crust! Just a creamy layer of mashed potatoes on the top. Perfect!

Leftover mashed potatoes make this delectable dinner even easier to prepare. But it’s not too much trouble to mash them for this recipe and they taste fantastic on the delicious filling. This recipe has a bit of southwestern flair.

Have some leftover potatoes? Hamburger, cheese, spices, peppers and salsa? It’s a go! Shepherd’s Pie is a very easy dinner to make, especially if you have the potatoe leftovers. I’ve made this several times now, and we really love this meat and potatoes dinner. It’s especially good with the peppers and corn. The southwestern seasonings are a favorite at our house!

Here’s all you need to do to enjoy this delicious meal!

Recipe Notes for Shepherd’s Pie:

  • Boil and mash your potatoes. Leftover mashed potatoes are a time saver here
  • Put a skillet on medium heat and make your filling. Choose any of your favorite veggies here. We prefer peppers and corn for the southwestern flavors.
  • Pour the filling into your 9-inch pie plate.
  • Spread mashed potatoes over the filling.
  • Shred one cup of cheese and sprinkle it over the top.
  • Bake! About an hour from start to finish

This shepherd’s pie is good comfort food. This is ‘man food’ according to my husband. He believes in hamburger and mashed potatoes. We needed a dose of comforting yum this fall night and Shepherds Pie fit the bill just right! I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping over Alexis! This is a good spice combination. Just a little bit of southwest flavor for an old American favorite.
