This twist on shepherd's pie features smoky, spicy chorizo and flavourful Oka cheese. A casserole this large will take several days to thaw in the fridge, so don't worry if it's still a bit firm after thawing for a day. The partial thawing just allows it to reheat a bit more evenly.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 leeks trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 lbs lean ground pork
  • 4 oz dry chorizo cubed
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced beef broth
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3 lbs potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 oz shredded Oka cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter


In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook leeks and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

In same pan, brown pork and chorizo over medium-high heat, breaking up pork with spoon, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the broth; cook, scraping up browned bits, until no liquid remains. Stir in flour; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Gradually stir in remaining broth; bring to boil. Stir in leek mixture, sweet potato, paprika, salt, pepper and cinnamon; return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in peas; scrape into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish.

Topping: Meanwhile, in large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes and garlic until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to pan; mash with milk, cheese and butter. Spread over pork mixture.

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until filling is bubbly and topping is golden, about 25 minutes.
