My mother-in-law introduced me to a wonderful Brie quesadilla that I wanted to re-create for a party. I didn't have all the ingredients and had a wheel of Brie instead of the creamed Brie she used. So, I pulled what I had on hand to create a dish similar in flavor. I added my own little twist, and now this has become a party favorite.—Sheri West, Surprise, Arizona
