Skip peeling “eyeball” grapes and making the kids scared to eat spaghetti and red sauce. These jack-o-lantern quesadillas with beans and cheddar are much easier -- and less scary. Use a large cookie cutter to make pumpkin-shaped tortillas, and top with thin layers of refried black beans and grated cheddar cheese. Top the cheese with more pumpkin-shaped tortillas, but cut out a jack-o'-lantern face before heating to melt the cheese.

1

Cut pumpkin shape out of each tortilla with 6-inch pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter.

2

Place 4 pumpkin-shaped tortillas on baking sheet. Spread 2 tablespoons refried beans on each cutout. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Top each with remaining pumpkin cutouts to make sandwich.

3

Using butter knife or bottle caps. (if kids are helping), cut pumpkin eyes and mouth out of top of each quesadilla.

4

Bake at 300 degrees until cheese melts, 3 to 4 minutes.
