This is kind of a Sloppy Joe pie with a costume on,
but it is inexpensive, tastes good and looks good on the table at a party or just for family dinner.
There will be no left-oversPrep Time: 30 min
- 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 chilies
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
- 1 egg
- Orange paste food coloring
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.
**If you want a double crust...double your amount of pastry...take half and line pie plate...pierce bottom a few times with fork to prevent bulges and cover with parchment or foil and blind cook it until the edges are a light brown...maybe 10 minutes or so. Then add your filling and cook as directed.
Now throw a quick salad together, to go with it, and eat.
