Grilled Barbeque Onion and Smoked Gouda Quesadillas


Grilled Barbecue Onion and Smoked Gouda Quesadillas

serves 4

Inspired by Bon Appétit

What You Need

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large yellow onions
½ cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons water
Around 1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)
6 to 8 ounces smoked Gouda cheese
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
8 flour tortillas

What To Do

1 Preheat a grill to medium low heat.

2 Thinly slice the onions. Chop the cilantro. Coarsely grate the Gouda cheese.

3 In a large nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add sliced onions and saute for about 5 minutes, until almost soft. Add ½ cup barbecue sauce and 2 tablespoons water; stir until onions are evenly coated, around 2 minutes. Turn off heat, and add hot sauce to taste.

4 Place tortillas on a work surface. Spread onions, cheese, and cilantro on half of each tortilla, and then fold in half (the folding method makes it easier to grill!).

5 Place the quesadillas on the grill, and cook until toasted and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side. Cut quesadillas into thirds, and serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.

    These quesadillas were a huge success. The bbq onion flavor and the smoky cheese complimented each other perfectly. Easy to do, and will def. do again.
