Make it anytime of the year or it’s a delicious dessert to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
This is so easy to do and it’s a recipe that you can make your own.
Use whatever fruits and berries you prefer – and why not spread the dessert love and make it for breakfast or lunch as well.
This is my kind of recipe – flexible, easy, and it’s dessert.
- 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple (you can use canned, drain it well)
- ½ cup fresh black berries (or your choice of berries)
- 1 fresh kiwi, peeled and slice
- 2 TBLS. honey
- 4 flour tortillas – 8″
- 1 large banana sliced
- 2 TBLS. butter
- ½ cup dulce de leche
- whipped cream or creme fraiche for garnish (optional)
- Prepare the salsa – cut pineapple in a small dice, rinse the blackberries. Place fruit in a small bowl and taste for sweetness before adding the honey. Set aside.
- Slice the banana in thin rounds. Spread dulce de leche on half of the tortilla and place sliced banana on top. Fold over the tortilla and place in a hot saute pan with a little butter. Cook about 2-4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from pan, place on plate and cut in wedges.
- Add the fruit salsa on top and drizzle with a little more dulce de leche or chocolate syrup.
- Serve warm - Garnish with whipped cream or creme fraiche if you wish.
You can make this a little more healthy by using whole wheat tortillas. Make your own if you have time or buy your favorite brand.
I was in such a hurry to taste the quesadillas that I forgot to add the whipped cream. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I would have loved the whipped cream but the pineapple salsa was so delicious I didn’t miss it. The fresh fruit shined on its own.
