Here's what you'll need for this easy recipe:
- Dakota Pride Black Beans
- Happy Harvest Whole Kernel Golden Sweet Corn
- Bell pepper
- Appleton Farms Fully Cooked Chicken Fajita Strips
- Simply Nature Organic Thick & Chunky Medium Salsa
- Happy Farms Mexican Style shredded cheese

This sweet potato pie couldn't be any easier. It's essentially a dump recipe. The first step is to layer the beans, corn, pepper, and chicken in the pie pan, working in order and smoothing each into an even layer. Add on the salsa and shredded cheese. Top with mashed sweet potatoes, gently spreading into an even layer. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Next is the best part, when you get to pipe on the sour cream webbing!
Spider Web Decoration Instructions
Spoon sour cream into a plastic bag or piping bag, then squeeze it into one corner of the bag. Seal the top of the bag 75% of the way, keeping the open end catty corner to the tip with the sour cream. Make a small (about ¼”) cut on the tip of the bag with the sour cream in it. Start at the center of the pie and make lines with the sour cream from the center of the pie to the edges resembling a star formation.
Draw anywhere from 5-10 lines. Then connect each line horizontally with a strip of sour cream, making your way around the pie 3-4 times and working your way from the edges to the center. If desired, place a toy spider (spider rings work great) on your spider web.
Though this sweet potato pie recipe makes a wonderful Halloween themed dish, it is perfectly delicious without the spider web decoration for any time of the year. The ingredients can easily be customized to fit your family's preferences as well.
You can also prep this dish ahead of time and bake when needed.
For this recipe, you will need a deep dish 9” pie pan, a 1 quart size seal-able plastic bag or piping bag, and a toy spider or spider ring.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 3-5 days. This recipe would also work great to make ahead for lunches by portioning into meal prep containers.Print
