Servings 2


  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 100 grams room temperature cream cheese
  • 200 grams grated cheddar cheese
  • 50 grams butter
  • sour cream and/or salsa for serving


  • Begin by using a knife or kitchen scissors to cut 4 tortillas into the shape of a pumpkin. Stacking 2 of the tortillas on top of each other before shaping ensures that you have a top/bottom for the quesadilla that match! Don’t forget to add eyes and a mouth to one side to make it look like a true jack-o-lantern.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and cheddar cheese until it’s fully combined.  Divide the mixture into 2 and spread on 2 of the tortillas without faces. Top the 2 tortillas with the other 2 tortillas with faces.
  • Heat a skillet to medium/low heat and add half of the butter to the pan. Once the butter is melted and heated, add the quesadilla to the pan and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese is beginning to melt.
  • Repeat with the second quesadilla and serve warm with sour cream or salsa for dipping.
