Easy Mummy Quesadilla perfect for Halloween Meals! So easy to make and looks amazing for Halloween Parties.
I am all in for Halloween fun this year! After a quiet few years of not really celebrating we are all in for all the Halloween Quesadillas and fun!
This is a great easy Halloween dinner everyone can enjoy before heading out trick or treating.
We are going to work on making pumpkin quesadillas to pair with these mummies. I thought about trying to make a quesadilla spider but I am still figuring out how to make it look amazing.
Did you see the week of Mummy sweet Halloween treats we shared earlier this month?
Day 1 - Mummy Crescent Dogs
Day 2 - Mummy Donuts
Day 3 - Mummy Twinkies

These quesadillas can be customized with your child’s favorite fillings so even older kids will love this Halloween Food.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make an epic Mummy Quesadilla! Specific measurements and step-by-step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- Flour Tortilla
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Sliced Olives
- Olive Oil Spray
Optional - chicken, avocado guacamole, black beans, salsa, peppers, and/or your favorite quesadilla fillings.
Pizza Wheel Cutter/ Kitchen Scissors/ sharp knife
Baking Sheet - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. You don't have to worry; you will remove the Mummy Quesadillas from the oven and have them slide right off.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make clean-up a breeze. You can also spray the pan with vegetable cooking spray.
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
How to make Mummy Quesadilla
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Preheat oven, prep ingredients, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2 - Place whole tortilla on parchment lined baking sheet, top with shredded cheese.
Step 3 - Cut tortilla strips with a pizza cutter to create mummy strips.
Place strips in a criss-cross pattern across the cheese.
Step 4 - Place olive halves to create eyes. Spray tortillas with olive oil spray if desired.
Step 5 - Bake until golden brown.
We bake these Halloween quesadillas but you could easily cook them in the microwave if desired.
We made these Mummy Quesadillas with 6-inch tortillas but you can use larger ones if you have them.

Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead – We do not suggest making these ahead of time. The quesadillas will not have the same crunch and super melty cheese if they are fully made ahead of time.
Storage – Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven at 350 degrees or in the microwave.
Freezing/How to freeze – We have not tried freezing quesadillas but if you choose to make sure to wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store in a freezer safe container. Thaw in the fridge before reheating.
How to reheat – Reheat in the microwave or the oven.
Substitutions - This recipe can easily be adapted with different cheese flavors, add in more veggies, a different type of tortilla.
Vegetarian Option - This recipe is vegetarian.
Vegan Option – Use vegan cheese. Make sure to check the tortilla ingredients.
Gluten Free - Use gluten-free tortillas
