After the success of our Mexican Shepherds Pie we thought we have a go at a Mexican Cottage Pie. Cottage Pie is normally made with beef mince but we thought we try adding our chipotle meatballs instead! We then pour over a beautiful rich gravy spiced up with our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and an extra hit of spice in the mashed potato with the addition of our Gran Luchito Chipotle Mayo makes this recipe one for the chilli lovers.

How to make it
Firstly, combine the breadcrumbs with the milk and stir. Leave to soak in while you prepare the other ingredients.
Cook pancetta until cooked through. Place on a chopping board and chop finely before returning to the pan. Lower the heat.
Add the onion and garlic to a food processor (alternatively just grate them).
