Dennis’ Shepherd’s Pie
Yields1 Serving
 2 lbs ground beef
 1 tbsp garlic powder
 16 fl oz Dennis' Black Bean & Corn Salsa
 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and cut into big chunks
 4 tsp butter (1/2 a stick)
 ¼ cup cup sour cream
 ¼ cup milk (more to suit your taste)
 Salt & Pepper to taste
1

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain any excess grease and add garlic powder and stir.

2

Add Dennis’ Black Bean & Corn salsa to the mixture and cook uncovered for 10 minutes.

3

Remove from heat. Spread the meat mixture in an even layer in a 9×13 dish. Allow the mixture to rest for 20 minutes before continuing.

4

While the beef mixture is resting, boil the potatoes in water until fork tender and then drain the water.

5

Add the butter, sour cream, milk, salt, and pepper to taste.

6

Mash the potatoes with a hand masher or mixer until you reach your favorite mashed potato consistency.

7

Top the meat with the mashed potatoes. Scrape potatoes with a fork or make swirls on top (this will look fantastic after the potatoes are browned).

8

Place the dish in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes until brown and bubbly. (After baking, you can place the dish under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the potatoes more, if desired.)

9

Optional: sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top and bake for another 5-7 minutes. Then garnish with parsley.
