Half-assed Cottage Pie

I’m sure the purists out there will say this isn’t cottage pie but mince with stuff in it and potatoes on top, will always be cottage pie to me. You can really put whatever you want in the mince as far as I’m concerned but this is what I did (this time).

250g mince beef
Onions (finely chopped)
Garlic (finely chopped)
Chilli (finely chopped)
Tin of baked beans
Handful of frozen peas
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Sweat the onions, garlic and chilli in the olive oil. Add the meat and cook. Add the peas, beans, salt and pepper and heat through. Add to a casserole dish and once cooled, cover with some mashed potato. Couldn’t be simpler. We froze ours but cook it at about 180 C, 350 F, gas 4 for about 30-45 minutes.
