I never had Shepherd's Pie till I moved to NZ, but its easy to make and tastes great.
A new take on Shepherd’s pie
1 can Mexican beans
Ground beef or mince (NZ)
Taco seasoning packet
3 large Potatoes
½ cup Cheese
Cook up the beef and chopped up onion in a pan, as you cook add in the taco seasoning and ¼ cup water. Once it is all cooked add in the beans.
Boil the potatoes and mash them adding in the milk and butter, same as you would always make mashed potatoes.
Put the cooked beef mix into a baking dish and put the mash potato on top.
Sprinkle the cheese on top. Put in the oven on 190c for 20 minutes or so.
I only had a small dish but normally you would use one that is larger and rectangle.
