Halloween Quesadillas Recipe

Stuffing the usual quesadilla recipe with squash is a fun way to make a holiday themed meal. It also includes beans and cheese to make it a complete meal that is ready in minutes.

I first made these quesadillas a few months ago and realized that they would be perfect for Halloween. Besides being orange and black, these quesadillas are really fast to make which is perfect for a night when you’re trying to cook, trick-or-treat, and get kids to bed at a reasonable hour.

I’m going to give you two recipes for this meal. The first is the super-easy version; you can get these quesadillas on the table in less than ten minutes. The second is the easy version; it is pictured above and was on the table in about thirty minutes.

Instructions

Yield: 4 quesadillas

  • 1 can pureed pumpkin
  • fajita seasoning (I use McCormicks)
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • grated cheese (soy, milk, or rice)
  • 8 corn tortillas

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place a corn tortilla on the skillet. Sprinkle a little grated cheese on the tortilla. Spread a spoonful or two of pureed pumpkin on the tortilla. Shake on a bit of fajita seasoning. Add a couple of spoonfuls of black beans. Sprinkle on a bit more cheese and top with another tortilla. Flip the tortilla and allow it to cook for a minute on the other side. Remove the finished quesadilla and repeat with the remaining ingredients until you’ve used them up =)

Easy Halloween Quesadillas

(Yield: 4 quesadillas)

  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 c. butternut squash, diced (about half of a butternut squash)
  • fajita seasoning (I use McCormicks)
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • grated cheese (soy, milk, or rice)
  • 8 corn tortillas
  1. Dice the onion and butternut squash. If you need some tips, click here for the onion and here for the squash.
  2. Put the squash into a bowl and fill with water. Cook in the microwave until tender (It took our microwave 10 minutes, but it’s ancient.)
  3. Add 1 Tbsp. of oil to a skillet and place over medium heat. Add the onions and saute while everything else is cooking.
  4. Drain the beans and thrown them into a pot over low heat. Add the garlic powder, cumin and tomato paste and stir until well combined. (You can add a bit of water if needed).
  5. Once the squash are tender, drain them and add into the skillet with onions. Season the veggie mixture with fajita seasoning – I didn’t measure so just taste as you go. As you stir the veggies, try to smash up the squash a little bit. You want to end up with mashed squash that still has some chunks in it.
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place a corn tortilla on the skillet. Sprinkle a little grated cheese on the tortilla. Spread a spoonful or two of the mashed squash and onion on the tortilla. Add a couple of spoonfuls of black beans. Sprinkle on a bit more cheese and top with another tortilla. Flip the tortilla and allow it to cook for a minute on the other side. Remove the finished quesadilla and repeat with the remaining ingredients until you’ve used them up =)
