Chili Shepherd’s Pie with Chipotle Mashers

Once again, leftovers scored big with a fantastic Chili Shepherd’s Pie with Chipotle Mashers, made with leftover chili. As I mentioned last week, I’ve been making loads of soup and chili lately in response to this unbelievably cold weather we’ve been having.

Instead of simply reheating the leftover chili like I usually do, I was in the mood for some kind of baked casserole when I got the idea to top the chili with mashed potatoes for a new twist on Shepherd’s Pie. And what a great idea it was!

The chili already had some veggies in it, but I added some extra corn kernels and spread it in a baking dish. I swirled about 2 tablespoons of chipotle chiles in adobo (a mix of the sauce with some minced chipotle) into the mashed potatoes, making it a gorgeous reddish-orange color. After spreading the mashers on the chili, I sprinkled some panko crumbs on top for a little crunch.

I had a feeling this was going to taste good, but it was even better than I expected. Seriously. If you have some chili on hand, it’s worth whipping up some mashed potatoes just to make this.

yum! as it happens, i'll have some leftover chili tomorrow (i hope) although with my family, you can never tell!
this sounds so much better than the chili-mac i usually make!
thank you for sharing!
Another flash of brilliance, Robin. Well done!
Jayedee, I hope you try it -- I like chili-mac too, but this is even better! (just be sure to add the chipotle to taste so it's not too hot for your family).

Thank you, Amber! This really is seriously good.
This looks great; we always make too much chili, and now we're going to do it on purpose!
I have thought of doing this! I may be making this for supper tonight.
What a great idea! I'm going to make this soon... Thanks Robin.
What a great idea! I really want to make this. :)
