Skillet Shepherd's Pie By: Jennifer W.
I am an adult cystic fibrosis patient who is constantly looking for new ways to improve my diet and nutrition. Our son has gluten intolerance and other food allergies, so finding meals that can fit all our needs can be challenging. This is a recipe that I found through Taste of Home magazine. I fattened it up a bit with powdered milk and sour cream and added the veggies to include additional protein, food groups and texture. When you use a gluten free taco seasoning (I use McCormick), it's great for Celiacs or those with gluten intolerance, too. It's a twist of two family favorites - mashed potatoes and tacos. It's easy to bake and easy to eat. We love it! I feel better knowing everyone got something we liked and needed.

- 1 medium onion, chopped (dried onion flakes may be used)
