Barbecue Beef and Corn Sheperd's Pie

I am a big Sheperd's Pie fan and so when I came across this recipe I knew I had to try it. What a fun twist on a classic recipe! This was tangy and a bit spicy and BURSTING with flavor. Now, I had started to make dinner by the time I realized I had the wrong kind of package of mashed potatoes. I only had a 4 oz. package of instant potatoes. So... we improvised! I didn't use the milk, water or butter and just made up the instant potatoes in the microwave. I still mixed them with the corn and onions and spread it over my beef mixture. It was still REALLY good. I also just served this with corn tortilla chips and we ate this like a dip. Super yummy and super easy!

8 medium green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
