Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/4 packed cups grated colby jack cheese
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chile powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp minced jalapeno, depending on how spicy you'd like it
  • 1/2 Tbsp chopped green onion
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 medium flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 of a lime
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Cilantro and jalapeno slices for serving

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin, cheese, spices through salt, jalapeno, and green onion. 

  2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add half of the pumpkin mixture to one half of one tortilla and fold the other side of the tortilla over to create a quesadilla. Carefully place in the pan and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until both sides are browned and the cheese is fully melted and the quesadilla is heated through. Repeat with the remaining oil, tortilla, and pumpkin mixture.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the sour cream, the juice of the 1/4 lime, and the smoked paprika in a small bowl. 

  4. To serve, slice each quesadilla into 3 equal portions and top with sour cream, cilantro, and jalapeno slices.
