It’s time for fall festivities, goblins, and ghouls! Here are some simply spooky ideas for you to treat your young ones and party guests with this holiday season.
Best Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas
We whipped up some of Chef Todd’s BBQ Chicken Quesadillas this week but didn’t follow the recipe exactly as we played a few tricks along the way. We turned our tortillas into jack-o-lanterns by cutting out some spooky shapes. Then we placed our jack-o-lantern on top and brushed a light coating of oil over it. Instead of warming our quesadillas up on the griddle we BAKED them in the oven until the cheese was melty and the tortillas were golden. Bake time was about 15 minutes.
TIPS: Make your own favorite quesadillas. Cut out a jack-o-lantern face on the top tortilla to turn your ordinary everyday appetizer into something spooktacular!
