Peel and cut potatoes into 2-inch (5 cm) chunks. In saucepan of boiling water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes; drain and mash. Blend in milk, parsley, butter and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each of the salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook carrots, onion, red pepper, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add bulgur and flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in stock; cover and cook over low heat until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes.

Add corn and remaining salt and pepper. Spread in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish; spread potatoes over top. Broil for 2 minutes or until golden. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Cover and store for up to 24 hours; reheat, covered, in 350°F/180°C oven for 30 minutes or until filling is bubbly.)
