Servings 4 servings


  • One refrigerated pie crust
  • pounds ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup corn (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup thick and chunky salsa (use mild for kids)
  • ½ cup chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • One 4.5-ounce can chopped green chiles (use mild for kids)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Unroll the pie crust onto an ungreased cookie sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a jack o' lantern face from the crust. Use some of the scraps to attach a stem to the top. Bake 9 minutes, or until the crust is light golden brown
  • Meanwhile, in a 10 or 11-inch nonstick skillet, cook the turkey and onion over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often until the turkey is no longer pink. Stir in the corn, salsa, chili sauce, brown sugar and chiles. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring once in a while, until everything is cooked through. Stir in the cilantro (if using). Carefully place the baked jack o' lantern crust on top of the turkey mixture in the skillet and serve!
