Peach & Brie Quesadillas

When I think quesadillas, a few things come to mind; guacamole, sour cream, salsa;  all things delicious.

This recipe however, utilizes none of the above.  
Fairly certain the reason I order a quesadillas at restaurants is for all the wonderful sides that accompany the cheesy, spicy filled tortillas. 

Instead, this recipe replaces the onions, chicken and peppers you would normally find sandwiched between two grilled tortillas, with sweet peaches and creamy brie cheese.  I have to say, if you are going to deprive me of having mashed up avocados at least you've replaced it with a dish that is good enough on it's own it needs very little help in the condiment department.

summer quesadillas await!

Peach & Brie Quesadillas


2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp zest of lime

2 large peaches; peeled, ripe and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tsp brown sugar
3 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced
4 (8 inch) flour tortillas
chive strips (optional)

To prepare sauce, combine all ingredients, whisk; set aside.
To prepare quesadillas, combine peaches, chives and sugar, tossing gently to coat.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Arrange 1/4 of cheese and 1/4 peach mixture over half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Cook 2 minutes per 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.
