Ingredients

Sauce:
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind

Quesadillas:
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.
