  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 10 muffin cups.
  2. Place ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until the meat is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, tomato sauce, carrot, and olives, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cover the skillet, and cook until thickened and the carrot is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  3. Working on a floured surface, separate each biscuit, and roll out into 4-inch circles. Press the circles of biscuit dough into prepared muffin cups; bake in the preheated oven until the cups are lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the biscuit cups from the pan, and place onto a baking sheet.
  4. Cut the 10 slices of American cheese into 3-inch circles, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the circles with a sharp paring knife. Chop remnants of cheese, and mix into the meat mixture. Fill the biscuit cups with meat mixture, and place a cheese face on top of each.
  5. Return to the oven, and bake just until cheese begins to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.

Best friend made it at her Halloween party and my roomie and I couldn't stay away! So good in my tummy!

This was a cute idea for Halloween. I used homemade biscuits and put them in ramekins because it was a better size for us. I altered the filling to accommodate what I had on hand and left the wh...

This was easy and fun! I made changes to my taste and I took another reviewers advice and made a hot pocket type of pie.

These are so yummy and easy to make! But they're a bit tedious and make quite a lot of mixture. I had at least 2 cups left over. Maybe use it for spaghetti another day, or the next time I make t...

We really enjoyed making this recipe! So much easier and cleaner than carving pumpkins. Only, I used 1 pound of ground beef instead of 1.5 and it was still too much meat for the biscuit "cups....

These were easy to make. The kids liked them because they look cool. Not as much meat fit in each one as I would have liked.

My picky teenager goggled these up. I used cheddar cheese instead of American and I didn't have canned biscuit dough so I made them from scratch. It was hard to see the pumpkin face, because t...
