Chili Shepherds Pie

As the temperature drops, comfort foods are in the cool air…….Chili Shepherds Pie is the best of two comfort foods!!

Chili Shepherds Pie

Chili is a must for fall, nothing warms the body and soul quite like a bowl of chili.

Everybody seems to have their favorite way of making mashed potatoes. Some cook them with the peel on, some without. Some add a little of the cooking water, some add cream or milk, some add butter, but whatever your way, creamy mashed potatoes always hit the spot.

Chili Shepherds Pie 4

Now these two together in the tradition of Shepherds Pie sounded like a hearty, fall dish to warm your innards.

This dish can be made from scratch, using leftovers, or by buying ready made at the local grocery store.

I have the chili recipe and my favorite way to make mashed potatoes recipe listed below.

Chili Shepherds Pie 3

If you have left over chili and mashed potatoes, just reheat them and follow the recipe.

If you are in a hurry and need a meal quick……use canned chili and ready made mashed potatoes.
I used a cast iron skillet, but you can chose your own vessel.

Chili Shepherds Pie 9

Place the chili in the pan, sprinkle with cheese, and cover with mashed potatoes.

Broil until golden brown……serve and enjoy a two, two two fall foods in one………Chili Shepherds Pie!
