Pumpkin-Brie Quesadillas

By • November 26, 2013 2 Comments



Author Notes: Quesadillas are some of the easiest and most popular party bites I can think of. Everybody likes them, and you can change the ingredients seasonally. These are perfect for fall and winter - use any pureed fall squash (I chose pumpkin here) and hit it with a bit of herbs and spices. Put it between tortillas with ooey gooey brie cheese and cook until crispy and golden brown.foxeslovelemons

Serves 8 as an appetizer

  • 1-3/4 cups pureed pumpkin

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 5 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced
  1. In small bowl, stir together pumpkin, chili powder, sage and cayenne.
  2. Heat griddle over medium heat; spray with cooking spray. Place 4 tortillas on griddle and top each with 1/4 of the pumpkin mixture, 1/4 of the cheese and a second tortilla. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until tortillas are golden and cheese melts, turning quesadillas halfway through cooking. Cut each into quarters and serve warm.
