Halloween Recipe: Jack-o'-Lantern Sloppy Joe Pie
Everyone needs a good hot meal before going trick or treating and I just love this idea.
o 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
o 1/2 cup chopped onion
o 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
o 1 cup salsa
o 1/2 cup chili sauce
o 1 cup frozen corn
o 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
o 2 tablespoons brown sugar
o 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
o 1 egg
o Orange paste food coloring
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salsa and chili sauce until blended; stir into skillet. Add the corn, chilies and brown sugar.
Transfer to a deep-dish 9-in. pie plate. Unroll pastry; place over filling. With a sharp knife, cut out a face to resemble a jack-o'-lantern; flute edges. Beat egg and food coloring; brush over pastry.
Bake at 450° for 9-11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Yield: 6 servings.
