This sloppy joe pie is so much fun to do and kids love it! You'll never have to worry about leftovers. It's even good for adult parties, but you might want to increase the heat level with a hotter salsa or seasonings. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

"This was delicious! I decided to use a top and bottom crust so it took a little longer to bake, about 20 minutes. I served it with a Greek salad for a filling dinner."

"Tasted just like a sloppy joe! Very flavorful. I made this with a turkey imprint instead of the pumpkin and did not add in the orange food color."

"deb_daken: Chili sauce is called "Chili Sauce" in a bottle. One brand name is Heinz. You can find in in the condiment aisle."
