Ingredients
  • Mango and Brie Quesadilla:
  • 4 (8-inch flour) tortillas (available in all grocery stores but sometimes hidden in the refrigerated or frozen food sections)
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, and sliced (If unavailable, replace with papaya or pear)
  • 1 serrano chile, or 2 jalapeno chiles, minced
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and diced
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped, stems discarded before measuring
  • 8 ounces Brie, sliced into long 1/4-inch slices (Rind removal is optional but I always remove it)
  • Sour Cream and Lime Dipping Sauce, recipe follows
  • Sour Cream and Lime Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions
Mango and Brie Quesadilla:

Heat a 10-inch nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Place 1 tortilla in the dry pan for approximately 1 minute per side, or until it just begins to brown. Remove. Repeat with the second tortilla. (If your tortilla expands like a blowfish, poke it with a fork to release the hot air.)

After the second tortilla has browned, leave it in the pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Spread half of the mango evenly over the tortilla, then top with half of the peppers, scallions, cilantro, and Brie strips. Top with the first tortilla. Cover the pan with a lid, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 2 minutes.

Flip the quesadilla with a spatula, re-cover the pan, and continue cooking for 2 more minutes. (Don't worry if a bit of cheese escapes and begins to sizzle loudly.)

Remove the quesadilla from the pan, let sit for 1 minute, then slice into 8 wedges (like a pizza). Serve immediately with the sour cream dipping sauce.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve with Sour Cream and Lime Dipping Sauce.

Sour Cream and Lime Dipping Sauce:

Blend sour cream, lime juice and salt with a fork until the mixture is smooth. Transfer to a small decorative bowl or teacup and refrigerate
