Chipotle Shepherd’s Pie

I should never underestimate the power of something with the word "chile" in it.  Wow, this stuff was HOTTT!  I think I should modify the recipe to include 1/2 or 1/4 of a chipotle and not an entire one.  That, or get rid of the chipotle all together and just have some "normal" shepherd’s pie.  I suppose that both Josh and I thought that this was ok once we mixed the potatoes into the rest of the dish, but as a stand alone, the potatoes could kill a person and it wasn’t just me.  Josh thought so too.  Yikes!!!
