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


  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 large egg
  • Orange paste food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a small bowl, combine flour, salsa and chili sauce until blended; stir into skillet. Add corn, chiles and brown sugar.
  2. Transfer to a deep-dish 9-in. pie plate. Unroll crust; place over filling. With a sharp knife, cut out a face to resemble a jack-o'-lantern; flute edge. Beat egg and food coloring; brush over crust.
  3. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 9-11 minutes.
