Barbecue Beef and Corn Shepherd's Pie

"To the meat mixture - I added some shredded carrots, doubled the green onions and would probably just use a regular can of corn and chop up my own red peppers. The instant potatoes were better than I would have thought plus VERY quick (under 5 mins) & inexpensive ($1 a pkg). I was surprised that lightly salted Fritos are not that bad of a chip for you – 8g of good fats with only 1.5g saturated per serving and no preservatives - just corn, corn oil and salt. It’s not a true shepherd’s pie but is a good tasting, inexpensive, quick meal!"

"Not sure how the picture shows Lucky Charm marshmallows not melted?? The last step has you microwave the entire mixture except chocolate – our marshmallows melted and got crispy. The kids still liked the mixture but it wasn’t as pretty as the picture. Plus I should have shook up the box to get more marshmallows from the bottom. We skipped the mini chocolate pieces and no one missed them."
