For the chutney

  • In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients for the chutney. Over medium-high heat, cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated. Reserve (see note).

For the quesadillas:

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the tortillas on the baking sheet. Spread the pear slices on half of a tortilla and spread the chutney over it; then fold in half. Repeat with the other tortillas.
  • Bake 3 to 5 minutes; the chutney will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.
  • Serve and enjoy your pear stuffed Quesadillas!
