These delicious, low calorie quesadillas combine Brie cheese and ripe mangoes. Served with a sweet raspberry dip, these quesadillas are an easy appetizer, brunch or lunch dish.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp honey

  • 1 cup raspberries, pureed

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 cup diced peeled mangos

  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives, plus additional for garnish

  • 1 Tbsp lime juice

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

  • 3 oz light brie cheese, thinly sliced

  • 4 low fat flour tortillas (8-inch diameter)

  • Sliced jalapeño pepper (optional)

Preparation

  • In a small bowl, combine honey, raspberries and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine mango, chopped chives, lime juice and cilantro, tossing gently to coat. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat mango mixture over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, or until mixture is heated through.
  • Divide mango mixture and Brie among each tortilla and fold tortillas in half.
  • Lightly coat another medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Cook 2 quesadillas in skillet for 2 minutes on each side, or until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.
  • Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges and serve with sauce. Garnish with chive strips and sliced jalapeños, if desired.
