But we want to give the savory side of spooky a little more love.

That’s why these jack-o’-lantern stuffed peppers are about to be the star of your Halloween show. They’re so good, it’s scary.

1. Create your jack-o'-lanterns

Cut the tops off your bell peppers and set aside. Remove all seeds and membranes. Create the faces you'd like on the front of your peppers. Be creative—this would be a wonderful time to bring in the family for some fun together in the kitchen.

2. Cook your filling

Cook the ground beef, onion and garlic in a skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Prepare your Rice-A-Roni separately according to the box instructions.

3. Combine your filling

Take your tomato paste, water and brown sugar and mix well. Now create your filling by combining the ground beef, Rice-A-Roni and tomato paste mixture.

4. Create your stuffed peppers

Split the mixture equally between your four peppers. Top the mixture with mozzarella cheese and place the top of the bell pepper back onto the jack-o'-lanterns.

5. Cook your stuffed peppers

Place each pepper upright in a baking dish with a small bit of water. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes at 350°F. Feel free to remove the pepper tops and broil the stuffed peppers to make the cheese crispy. Add additional cheese if needed, serve and enjoy!

If jack-o'-lantern stuffed peppers are the perfect Halloween meal, then jack-o'-lantern pops are the perfect dessert. It's time to treat yourself—it's Halloween, after all!
