Jack-o’-Lantern Quesadillas

These cute pumpkin quesadillas will make even the pickiest eaters excited for dinner.  Serve with tomato soup.  Makes 8 servings.


What you’ll need:

  • 16 (8-inch) tortillas; look for orange or red varieties
  • cooking spray
  • 2 cups grated pepper-jack cheese

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the broiler to high.
  • Stack 8 tortillas on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to trim away some of the top leaving a stem so that it looks like a pumpkin.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • In 8 of the tortillas, cut out 2 triangles for eyes and a crescent for the mouth.
  • Warm a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.  Add a tortilla without eyes, sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese and cover with cut-out tortilla with eyes and cook until the underside is warm and beginning to brown, 1-2 minutes.
  • Slide the tortillas onto a baking sheet and repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Broil on a baking sheet until the tops are lightly brown (watch carefully!).
  • Serve.
