Serves 6 | Prep Time | Cook Time


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.
