In this video, Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com takes a brief break from rowing to share his recipe for fajita pie. Unfamiliar with fajita pie? Just think shepherd’s pie with a twist.

Massie’s fajita pie—made up of a special blend of meat and spices and a layer of caramelized sweet-potato mash—brings together the simplicity of Midwestern comfort food and the vibrant flavors of the Southwest. Seasonings, three different types of peppers and fresh garlic really “bring it to life,” he says.

Start by preheating the oven and getting the water ready to boil the potatoes. Once you’ve sautéed the spices, peppers and garlic and browned the ground turkey, you’ll be ready to drain and mash the sweets. Then it’s time to assemble the casserole.

Spread the turkey in the bottom of a casserole pan, smooth the mash over the top, bake or freeze and voilà—a delicious meal in the Zone!
