Keifer Derrin of food blog DonkeyFodder.com shares his recipe for a Mexican influenced Chilli Con Carne Pie. Sounds odd but tastes delicious.
When I was first told the name of this dish, I bulked at the idea as I really didn’t like the sound of it. Chilli con carne pie, the thought of a delicious chilli covered in a pastry, just doesn’t sound right.

This is more of a Mexican shepherd pie, with the meat sauce being a chilli (of sorts) and the topping of mashed potato but with turmeric and coriander. I still think it’s an odd dish but surprisingly it works well and I have enjoyed it several times now. I served it with brussel sprouts, even though they are one of my least favourite veg, but it’s my other half’s favourite so I oblige – how wonderful am I?
