My husband is turning 40 soon and I’ve started to pick his brain about how he’d like to celebrate. He’s thrown out a few crazy ideas, but for the most part they’ve been fun. One of the things that gets deep into his soul is Shepards Pie. In honor of his celebration prep (we’re still on the party or not party fence), I created an appetizer just for him…. Shepards Pie Dip!
This Shepards Pie Dip has all of the flavor of traditional Shepdards Pie but it’s extra cheesey and creamy AND you get to use a chip (try with corn chips, it’s AMAZING).
