Love fresh peaches in season? How about melted, warm brie cheese? How about marrying them together in a quesadilla and dipping them in a lime and honey dipping sauce? Yes – YUM!

Peach and Brie Quesadillas with Lime-Honey Dipping 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
• Chive strips (optional)

Preparation

1. To prepare sauce, combine first 3 ingredients, stirring with a whisk; set aside.

2. 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.

Note: 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.
