Jack-o-lantern Quesadillas

Halloween night is one of the best nights of the year.  I loved it when I was growing up, and I love it now. The fun costumes, trick-or-treating, yummy food, friends, family, fall weather…it’s the best!  I like to do something fun for dinner, but quick and easy is my goal.  My kids are usually (always) antsy to get out the door and start trick-or-treating, which starts pretty early where we live, so I need dinner that can meet all of those requirements.  I always make soup (usually this Taco Soup) because I can make it during the day, and then I can whip up these darling Jack-o-lantern Quesadillas in no time at all!

Aren’t they adorable? And SO easy!  My kids absolutely love them–quesadillas are always a huge hit at our house, but with a jack-o-lantern face, they’re even more fun.  We usually do just cheese, but you could add whatever you like to the middle to make it more of a meal.

You could also serve these at any Halloween party…definitely sure to be a hit.

To make the face, I used a super cute cookie cutter set to cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth–it made it SO easy! It’s also perfect to use for any other yummy jack-o-lantern things you’re making! You could certainly use a small knife if you don’t have access to the cookie cutter.

Quick, simple, and adorable…Halloween perfection!

Easy and yummy idea for Halloween dinner! 



  • Lay out two tortillas for each quesadilla, and on one of the tortillas, cut out a jack-o-lantern face. I used a jack-o-lantern cookie cutter that makes it really easy, but a paring knife works too!
    Melt a little butter in a large saucepan (or on a griddle) set to medium high heat. Set the tortilla with no face on the griddle, sprinkle grated cheese on top, then lay the pumpkin face on top of the cheese.
    When the bottom side is golden brown, flip it over and let the other side cook until it’s also golden brown.
