Ingredients
  

  • 8 gluten free flour tortillas
  • 1 ½ cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup roasted delicata squash
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup scallions

Instructions
 

  • Heat a cast iron pan on medium heat with a little avocado oil or other high heat oil.
  • Slice a delicata squash in half. Chop the cooked delicata squash.
  • Place the squash in the cast-iron pan and cook for 10-12 minutes. Flip the squash over so both sides cook. Exact cooking time depends on how thick you cut the squash.
  • In another pan, sauté spinach in avocado oil. Add cumin, pepper, and salt. Remove from the stove and pour into a bowl.
  • Place a gluten free flour tortilla in the cast-iron skillet. Add cheese, squash, and spinach on top of the tortilla. 
  • Cover with another tortilla and cook for 3 minutes. 
  • With a spatula, check the bottom tortilla. If it has crisped, use the spatula to flip it over so that the other side can cook. (Just like if you are making a grilled cheese sandwich.)
  • Remove from the pan and slice. Serve hot with sour cream and scallions.

Notes

  1. You can customize the fillings with anything you like. My son loves adding sausage and cheddar :-). Add any meats and/or vegetables.
  2. My favorite gluten free brand of tortillas is by Mission. They make plain and spinach flour tortillas. There are a few other brands, including a Cassava brand. I haven't tried these yet in this recipe.
  3. Serve hot.
