Mexican Shepherd’s Pie

2018-11-20T06:05:00+00:00November 11th, 2018|Food, Recipes|0 Comments

So Shepherd’s Pie is one of those warm, comforting homey foods that is hard not to love.

Here are a few tips for you:

  1. If you’re looking for lactose-free boxed potatoes, use Idahoan Original Potato Flakes.  Most other kinds have milk or butter in them.  You can also feel free to use leftover homemade mashed potatoes.
  2. I would suggest using Kraft Mexican cheese blend.  Most Kraft shredded cheese is lactose-free, but I would suggest checking the back of the bag for the words “0 grams of lactose per serving” right under the ingredient list.
  3. My favorite butter substitute is Smart Balance light buttery spread.  Not only is it lactose-free, it’s also really great for you with less fat and fewer calories than regular butter.

Here’s the final result.  Hope you love it!
