  • For the Topping - 1/2 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives (for topping)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • For the Quesadillas - 1 lb. fully cooked turkey breast meat, shredded
  • 2 cups brie, rind removed
  • 8-8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 cup sweetened, dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives (for filling)



  • For the Topping - Place first six ingredients in food processor to make the chive sour cream topping. Process until smooth, scraping occasionally. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
