• Savory Pumpkin Quesadillas

    Pumpkin is an often overlooked ingredient for a main dish. These savory pumpkin quesadillas are a great way to use a healthy ingredient in an amazingly flavorful combination of chipotle peppers, black beans, cheese and caramelized pumpkin.
    1 cup raw pumpkin (or other squash) (cut into 1/2 inch cubes)
    1 teaspoon canola oil
    2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (chopped)
    1/4 cup black beans
    1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
    1 green onion, chopped
    2 large tortillas
    2 handfuls cheese such
    as cheddar or jack etc. (grated)
    1 tablespoon cilantro (chopped, optional)

    Preheat oven 400F

    Place the chopped chipotle peppers in a medium size bowl, add the raw pumpkin chunks, until well coated. Place the pumpkin on a cookie sheet and roast for 12-15 minutes, remove from oven, flip the pumpkin pieces over, return to oven for another 12-15 minutes or until pumpkin is soft and caramelized.
    While the pumpkin is roasting, combine the black beans, jalapeno and green onion in a small bowl, mixing gently to combine.



    Once the pumpkin is done roasting, remove it from the oven and set aside for a few minutes. In a large skillet heat
    a pat of butter in the pan. Place a tortilla in the pan, fry lightly, flip: top with caramelized pumpkin and bean/pepper/onion mixture. Sprinkle generously with cheese and top with the other tortilla.

    Lightly fry on both sides and they are golden brown and the cheese is heated throughout.
