Peach and Brie Quesadillas with Lime-Honey Dipping Sauce

This intriguing Mexican  dish is savory-sweet. Ripe—but firm—peaches work best; if they're too soft, they'll make the tortillas soggy. Kick-up quesadilla night with fresh peaches and a quick 3-ingredient sauce. 

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

Preparation

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.
