Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Windy Airey


There are days you're just bored with the same old same old! I figured a twist on the old standby of Shephard's Pie would be to give it a "south of the border" flair... so gave this a try. Made a hit and tasted great! For those who like the heat, add some green chilis or hot sauce to kick it up a notch.

How to Make Mexican Shepherd's Pie


  1. Brown hamburger with onions in skillet. Add seasoning, diced tomatoes and black beans. Heat through and pour into a 13x9" pan. (You can add hot sauce to make this more spicy. I like it mild!)
  2. Spread one cup of the cheese on top of the hamburger mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the corn bread, eggs, and milk. Spoon on top of the hamburg mixture. Then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the corn bread.
  4. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before serving!
