Nutrition facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
Brie cheese, in slices
1 ripe papaya (yellow and fragrant)
1/2 white onion, sliced and blanched slightly
1 Hatch or long green Chile, roasted, peeled and sliced
2 TBS oil
Layer the cheese and papaya. A couple of pieces of papaya should do it. Sprinkle a few onion pieces and the chiles, fold, brush with oil and fry until the outside begins to brown and the cheese is melted. Cut into wedges.
I've made these for many parties and always get "oohs and Ahhs". Of course for THIS list, habaneros may be substituted for the wimpy Hatch chiles.
