Jack O' Lantern Pie version 2

This is what I made last night for dinner. It came out really cute and yummy!

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 box (9 oz) Green Giant® Niblets® frozen corn, thawed, drained
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup of water
1 egg white and orange food color paste/gel

1 refrigerated pie crust

Heat oven to 450°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in corn, tomatoes, kidney beans, 2 tablespoons flour, the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder,salt and water. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently; boil and stir 1 minute. Keep warm over low heat.

Carve a Jack O'Lantern face into your pie crust.

Pour the meat mixture into a 9 inch pie dish and cover with your pie crust.  Brush on the orange wash.

Bake uncovered about 12 minutes or until crust is light brown.

Cute huh?  I did not have a pre made crust so I whipped up Martha Stewart's Favorite Pie Crust.  It rolled out pretty good, but when it came time to put it on the pie it ripped a bit and was a little sticky.  That happened probably because yesterday was a warm and very steamy day here in SW Florida.
