Delicious leftover chilli con carne potato pie

When you make chilli, there are always, ALWAYS some leftovers. And I love to give them a second life. This is one of these recipes – I’m turning my delicious chilli into a beautiful potato pie. It’s simple, economical, and most importantly super, super tasty!

Making a pie from a leftover sauce is a life-changing idea. You can use any leftover sauce you have! Some extra bolognese sauce? Make it a pie! I practice it very often and I totally recommend it!

The Best Chilli Con Carne Ever

So, for this recipe, you will need 3 cups of leftover chilli or leftover bolognese sauce. If you don’t have it, you can make it from scratch.

Here’s the recipe for The Best Chilli Con Carne.

How to make the best potato pie

This recipe is super easy, but still, there are some tips to follow to achieve the best results:

  1. Cool the chilli before – transfer the chilli into the casserole dish and put it into the fridge for some time. It will be thicker so it’ll be easier to spread potatoes on top.
  2. Creamy, mashed potato – I like to have my mashed potatoes thick, but for this recipe, I’m adding quite a lot of milk to make potatoes more creamy. It’s just so much easier to spread! You can use regular milk or dairy-free milk, eg. I used unsweetened almond milk.
  3. Add cheese on top – I didn’t have any (dairy-free) cheese in the fridge so I skipped it, but if you can, add cheese – regular or vegan! It will be soo good.
