i love cheese, especially ones with good flavor. Brie is one of those cheeses. You need to let it stand to room temperature and yes, you can eat the rind and all. Bad brie that is overripe will smell like ammonia. Brie is especially good baked into souffles and other pastries as well as yes, quesadillas. Combining the tasty brie with a fruity mango salsa makes for a delectable appetizer.
one wheel of brie, how much depends on how much you want to make
1/3 of a papaya
1 serrano chile
cilantro, chopped fine
Slice the brie thinly. Place slices on a tortilla and sprinkle with crushed pecans. PLace other tortilla on top so that the brie is sandwiched between. Warm the tortillas through in the oven or if you have one of those cool quesadilla/sandwich warmer appliances use that. Cook until cheese is melted through.
To make the salsa, chop up mango and papaya and mix in a bowl. Fine chop a seeded serrano chile and toss in with the mango and papaya. Fine chop some cilantro and mix in well. You could also add some fine chopped purple onion if you want.
Serve salsa on top of the quesadillas.
Enjoy :) these are beyond yummy!
