(Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
- 1 cup thinly sliced peeled firm ripe peaches (about 2 large)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 3 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced
- 4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
- Cooking spray
- Chive strips (optional)
- This intriguing appetizer is savory-sweet. Ripe--but firm--peaches work best; if they're too soft, they'll make the tortillas soggy.
- Placing the fillings on one side of the tortilla and folding the other half over (like a taco) makes the quesadillas easier to handle.
- Whole wheat tortillas would also be great, offering a sweet, nutty taste.
- The lime-honey dipping sauce balances the richness of the buttery filling.
- To prepare sauce, combine first 3 ingredients, stirring with a whisk; set aside.
- To prepare quesadillas, combine peaches, 1 tablespoon chives, and sugar, tossing gently to coat.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Arrange one-fourth of cheese and one-fourth of peach mixture over half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.
- Coat pan with cooking spray.
- Place 2 quesadillas in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp.
- Remove from pan; keep warm.
- Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas.
- Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges; serve with sauce.
- Garnish with chive strips, if desired.
