Chicken Quesadillas are tranformed with the right cheese on the outside to create Candy Corn Chicken Quesadillas, a healthy Halloween recipe!
Ok, ok, I realize it’s still September. I’m having a bit of difficulty holding back from one of my favorite holiday seasons; Halloween. There are many things I love about Halloween. The whimsy of it. The chance to dress up, which I do every year. The fun, more rustic decorations, with so many homemade options. And the chance to come up with some spooky food!
I promise I’m not going to feed you with a fire hose of ghoulish treats from now until October 31 but this idea popped to mind late last week and I could not stop myself from trying it, and then in seeing how cute (and delicious) it turned out, from sharing it with you!
I think I horrified my 10 year old by declaring I was going to make Candy Corn Chicken Quesadillas. Before his gag reflex fully engaged I slipped in that no candy corn were harmed in the making of this recipe, it was just that the quesadillas LOOK like candy corn thanks to three different types of cheese.
There are always so many sweet confections in October I love thinking up some more hearty, healthy options that are still playful. This is a fun quick dish anytime this month or including before Trick or Treating. The quesadilla is filled with roast chicken, your favorite salsa, sour cream and roasted green chilies. It’s a simple savory dish, with a bit of crafting in creating the cheese mosaic. Completely filling and delicious!
