Pumpkin-Brie Quesadillas

November 26, 2013

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.


Serves: 8 as an appetizer


  • 1-3/4 cups pureed pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 5 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced
In This Recipe


  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.

the quesadillas surely looks simple to make and tasty looking, but the ingredient ask for 1/4 cup cayenne! I believe it was a mistake; may be 1/4 tsp ?

Uh oh, those would be REALLY spicy! haha. I'll go correct it right now. You're right - it's supposed to be 1/4 tsp. Thanks so much for letting me know!
