  • 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


  • 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.


  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.
