    Interesting blend of flavors! So unique but definitely not displeasing. This is really rich so it is much better suited in small pieces as an appetizer than as a lunch or meal.

    I had a lot of fun with this recipe. In addition to brie, I made some with cheddar cheese and some other white cheese, then one with some crumbled blue cheese (without jalapeno). Then I thought, well, what if I don't have pears? I made one with dried raisins, scallions and cheese - that was a nice combo, too. This made a nice light supper on a day I just did not feel like cooking.

    I used a mandoline, set on 1/8 inch, to cut everything except the cheese. I should have used a larger size tortilla to better fit my quesadilla maker but I just went with what I had. My girls and I liked these but the guys, well they want some meat in their quesadillas. Thanks for posting. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game
