Pumpkin Quesadillas

For the last several years, it’s been a tradition to make pumpkin quesadillas on Halloween – they’re easy, the kids love them, and they go great with Beetroot Chili (or any chili for that matter).

Pumpkin Quesadillas

  • 4 oz cheddar cheese, or a mix of cheddar and jack, grated
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala (or a mix of cumin and cinnamon)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • good pinch cayenne
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • small corn tortillas

Heat a pan or griddle over medium high heat – I use my tawa 🙂

Combine cheese, pumpkin, and spices and mix well. Spread a smallish amount over a tortilla and top with another, cook on both sides, flipping, until toasty and brown. Allow to cool slightly then slice in quadrants, serve with salsa/sour cream/chili.
