Don't Miss: Gross Recipes for Halloween
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 6-8 servings
- 8 oz. carrots, sliced into chunks (or use bagged baby carrots)
- 2 cloves garlic (use pre-peeled garlic from the produce section to save time)
- 1 cup whipped cream cheese
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 16 oz. can refried beans
- 6-8 large (burrito size) flour tortillas
- 1 Roma tomato, cut into triangle-shaped chunks
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Place the carrots in the work bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade (the food processor should NOT be plugged in yet). Put the top on the food processor, plug it in, and pulse 4 to 6 times until the carrots are grated (it’s okay to have some carrot chunks).
- Add the garlic cloves and pulse another 2 to 3 times. Add the cream cheese, butter, eggs, salt and all but 1/2 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese. Save it for later. Process until smooth.
- Unplug the food processor and remove the top. With a grown-up’s help, place 1 cup of the cheese mixture in a medium bowl. Using a potato masher, add the refried beans to the bowl and mash with the cheese mixture. Place the remaining cheese mixture in another bowl.
- Spray a cookie sheet or baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place a tortilla on the cookie sheet. Spread a layer of the cheese mixture on top of the tortilla. The tortilla should look like an open-faced sandwich with the cheesy mixture facing up.
- Stack another tortilla on top of the cheesy mixture, and spread a layer of the cheese-and-refried-bean mixture on top of the second tortilla. Again, the cheesey-bean mixture faces up.
- Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas, alternating between the cheesy mixture and the cheesy-bean mixture.
IMPORTANT: End with a layer of the plain cheese mixture facing up.
- Sprinkle the reserved cheese over top.
- Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden.
- Remove from oven and place two tomato chunks in the center of the tortilla for eyes and use the remaining chunks to make a mouth for your pumpkin. Slice into triangles and serve.
