Beefis, Neeps & Tatties

Made this by accident today using up some left-over ingredients - but it's surprisingly delicious. For those that don't like Haggis I'd like to suggest this as a modern alternative...

Mince - about a kilo of beef
Turnip - diced - about half a kilo
Carrots - diced - about half a kilo
Bell Peppers - diced - one or two
Spice Mix for Fajitas - Old El Paso
Cashew Nuts - I had a 65 gram bag of salted ones
Tomato Paste - about half a tube
Couple of Potatoes - thinly sliced

Boil & mash the Turnip & Carrots - can take a long while to soften enough. Season well with salt & pepper.

Fry the Mince & Peppers until browned off then add a little water and Tomato Paste.

Mix in the Spice Mix. Simmer and stir for a few minutes. Stir in the Cashew Nuts.

Transfer this "Beefis" mix to a large over dish and layer the mash on top using back of a spoon.

Brush the Sliced Potatoes with oil and layer on the top with a little more seasoning  for effect..

Bake in a medium over for about an hour and then enjoy with some of Burns poetry...

Edit - think I'll rename it Texas, Neeps & Tatties :-)
