Directions

To make the potato topping, place the potatoes in a large pot with enough cold water to cover; bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add the chipotles, adobo sauce, butter, and salt; mash with a potato masher until the potatoes are smooth and creamy. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the beef, breaking the beef apart with a spoon, and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the oil to same skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion, zucchini, squash, and garlic; cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Return the beef to skillet along with the tomatoes, broth, chipotles, cumin, and salt; bring to boil. Spoon the filling into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the filling evenly with the cheese.
Spread the potato topping over the beef mixture. Bake until potato topping is lightly browned and the filling is bubbly along edges, 25–30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
