Test Kitchen tips
  • Cottage pie or shepherd's pie? Traditionally, shepherd's pie is made with lamb, while cottage pie is the same dish but with beef.
  • Black beans taste great in this dish if you're not a fan of kidney beans.
  • For a lighter take, substitute ground chicken or turkey for the beef.
  • Add chopped jalepenos or a splash of your favorite hot sauce for a spicy touch.
