This fancy little dish looks like you spent way more time in the kitchen than you will! The name is courtesy of my husband, who likes this in spite of himself.

  1. Wash and pierce skins of pumpkins with a knife (to prevent explosions). Microwave on HIGH 10-12 minutes.
  2. Remove, and cool enough to cut off the tops and scoop out the seeds. (Just like a jack-o-lantern, but smaller!) Be careful to leave as much meat (non-seeds) attached as possible.
  3. Brown beef in a medium saucepan over med-high heat.
  4. Add onion, peppers, and minced garlic. Cook until fragrant.
  5. Reduce heat to med-low, stir in tomatoes, corn, beans and spices.
  6. Spoon into pumpkins, top with some cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
  7. Serve with a flourish!
