Mealthy Tip

These crowd-pleasing quesadillas are adaptable to so many ingredient changes. If you can't find a good papaya, swap in another fruit, like thin slices of mango or peaches. You can also try another cheese, such as Camembert or Monterey Jack. Skip the chicken for a vegetarian version; you can still spread the barbeque sauce onto the bottom tortilla though. Use whole wheat tortillas for a little extra fiber or corn tortillas to make it gluten-free!

I took the author's suggestion and used mango instead of papaya as I already had it in my fridge. Wow, the BBQ sauce and the sweet mango were so tasty together. I served this with a simple romaine salad and extra BBQ on the side for dipping. Had never thought to use brie in a quesadilla but will definitely do it again.

I really love this recipe. For some reason, the bbq chicken and papaya just work. It's a smoky, sweet tasting quesadilla that even my kids love. We make these every time we have people over now.
