Tomorrow is Halloween, and if you're still looking for something festive to add to the table or take to a party, these stuffed jack-o-lantern peppers are hauntingly good and easy to make. You could stuff the peppers with a variety of things, including macaroni or chicken with rice, but the recipe in the pictures uses ground beef and a couple other basic ingredients.
