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."

"What did you use for the "chili sauce"? BBQ sauce? Tabasco? I'm planning on making it for halloween - such a cute idea."

"My husband & kids gave this one a big thumbs-up. I added a pie crust on the bottom and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese over the beef before I put on the top crust. We will definitely make this one again."

"Since my "child" is grown and away at college, I made this dish for my husband and I without carving the jack-o-lantern face and it was amazingly yummy! I just put the pie crust on top and baked it - nothing else to add to it. This dish has wonderful flavor (salsa and chili sauce together) and I also make regular sloppy joes using buns with this recipe. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing, Bonnie!"
