Recipe Description

These Halloween quesadillas are sure to get everyone into the spirit. You’ll want to toast the jack-o-lantern tortillas first before adding them to the top of the quesadillas instead of flipping them. That way the cheese and fillings won’t escape from the eye and mouth holes.


1 (18-ounce) package SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp

3 tablespoons canola oil

1 (12-ounce) package fajita vegetables

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

8 soft taco-size flour tortillas

1 (8-ounce) block Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Salsa and sour cream


Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bake the SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp according to package directions, 10 to 12 minutes.

While the shrimp bake, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fajita vegetables and taco seasoning and cook 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Remove the vegetables from the skillet to a bowl and wipe the skillet clean.

Using a paring knife, cut a jack-o-lantern face into each of 4 tortillas. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in the skillet and brown each of the jack-o-lantern tortillas 1 minute. Set aside.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese onto the remaining 4 tortillas. Top evenly with the fajita vegetables and shrimp. Sprinkle with another 1/4 cup cheese and place the jack-o-lantern tortillas on top.

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 quesadilla and cook, face-side up, 1 minute or until browned. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.

Serve with salsa and sour cream.
