A jazzed up and tomato-y version of Shepherds' Pie. Very tasty. I would make this again.
A well deserved 5 stars for a satisfying comfort food meal! This was like a pumped up & seasoned version of shephard's pie. I reduced the recipe by half and still ended up with six generous servings. I did make a few changes to utilize what I had on hand starting with lean ground pork instead of the cubes. I used 1 can of black beans instead of using two half cans, had to substitute velvetta for half of the cheddar, and included the optional italian seasoning. The filling was well seasoned without being too spicy encased with creamy cheese & then topped by roasted garlic potatoes. I appreciated the finishing touch of the onion flakes. They browned & were little crispy bits on the top. All diner's were happy & gave it a thumb's up. Thank you for your entry & good luck!
