    This is my eleven year old sons favorite.

    Boil peeled potatoes, how many depends on how well your family likes mashed potatoes.

    Brown about a pound or so of lean ground beef. Drain fat off.
    Add 1/2 cup green peppers
    Add 1/2 cup onions, when in a hurry I use the frozen seasoning mix of pepper, parsley, celery and onion use a cup when doing that.
    Add one can of rotel tomatoes or canned tomatoes and continue to cook mixture down.
    Salt and pepper to taste, I like to also add some garlic salt.

    Pour meat mixture into casserole and top with about 1/2 cup of grated cheese.

    Mash potatoes with milk, butter, and salt and pepper.
    Cover top of meat and cheese with mashed potatoes and top with grated cheese.

    Bake for about 15 minutes in 350 degree oven until cheese is melted.

    Pumba, just curious, I never heard of Chinese pie until I got a job in Auburn. Is that term unique to that area?:rolleyes: I am from the "other" Maine!

    Pumba, I am from York County, you know the part of Maine that is a suburb of Boston! :) Down here we call in Shepherds pie, but my Auburn friends all call it Chinese pie. Apparently, shepherds settled southern Maine and Asians settled the area along the Androscoggin River. This board is a virtual history lesson! LOL!:rolleyes:
