QUESADILLA MUMMIES

Getting kids to eat before heading out for Trick-or-Treating can be a challenge.

by Beth

But giving kids the opportunity to help make their own fun dinner will get them excited to eat.

These Mummy Quesadillas can be made with your child’s favorite fillings, like chicken, cheese, beans, tomatoes, avocado, and more and are so easy to decorate that even your young ones can help. If you are looking for a food craft for your older kids, they might also like to try to decorating Halloween quesadillas using a stencil.

These cute quesadilla mummies were handcrafted by my friend’s young children. They had so much fun making their own unique mummy, then gobbled them up afterwards.

Quesadilla Mummies

Ingredients:

2 tortillas per mummy

fillings – shredded cheese, chicken, ground beef, shredded pork, sliced steak, black beans, refried beans, tomatoes, peppers, etc. *

*We just used cheese, as the kids made these for an afternoon snack, not dinner, but they can be filled with whatever your child likes.

2 jumbo candy eyes **

**We used these because the kids begged me, but you can cut slices of white cheese into small circles then cut the tips off two olives to make eyes that would taste better in a quesadilla.

Instructions:

I wanted my quesadillas to be a bit smaller than the tortillas I purchased, so I cut them using a round cookie cutter. You can skip this step if you prefer.

For each mummy, you’ll need one whole tortilla and the other one cut into strips.

Top the whole tortilla with your fillings. Criss-cross the cut tortilla strips to create your mummy.

I cut some of the tortilla scraps into strips so we could have a few extra strips to cover our mummies.

Add the eyes.

Bake in a 350 degree oven until the tortillas are lightly golden brown and the cheese is melted and fillings are heated through, 6-10 minutes.

Serve hot.
