Southwest Shepherd's Pie with Mashed Cauliflower Cheddar & Bacon

Delish brings us a healthier take on the traditional shepherd's pie. See the full recipe and video here. It sounds yummy and is rated as easy to prepare. (That's my skill level!)

Southwest Shepherd's Pie with Mashed Cauliflower Cheddar & Bacon


2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 small red pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. jalapeno, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground turkey
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 (14.5 oz.) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 c. corn kernels, fresh, frozen, or canned
1 (20 oz.) bag Green Giant Mashed Cauliflower Cheddar & Bacon, cooked according to package directions
2 green onions, sliced, greens and whites separated


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Cook onion and red pepper until slightly softened, 5 minutes. Add jalapeno and garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 minutes more.

Add ground turkey and sauté until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Stir in tomatoes and corn and let simmer until liquid is slightly reduced, 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix cooked Green Giant Mashed Cauliflower Cheddar & Bacon with the white parts of the green onion. Spread cauliflower mash over turkey mixture and smooth top.
Bake until mashed cauliflower begins to turn golden, 20 minutes.

Garnish with darker ends of the green onion.
