The sweet warm figs and tangy melted cheese are an interesting combination.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°; brush a large baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Place the tortillas on the baking sheet.
  3. Spread ¼ cup of the cheese on the bottom half of each tortilla.
  4. Add a layer of figs (use about ¼ cup for each tortilla).
  5. Sprinkle each with about ½ tablespoons red onion and ½ tablespoon cilantro; then top with ¼ cup of the remaining cheese.
  6. Fold the tortilla over to make half-circles; press down lightly.
  7. Bake about 8 minutes or until the tortillas are golden brown on the bottom.
  8. Using a wide spatula, carefully turn the tortillas over; bake another 3 minutes or until the bottoms are golden.
  9. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let cool slightly.
  10. Transfer the quesadillas to a cutting board; cut (using a knife or scissors) each one into 4 wedges.
  11. Serve immediately.

These were really good! They sound like an odd combination. My husband wasn't enamored with the idea of these...until he ate a piece. He ended up loving it! I did too. We will make these again for sure.
