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.

    Our second ‘A Couple Cooks’ recipe. Of course, we LOVED it!!! We used Lillie’s Q Smoky Hot BBQ sauce (our favorite BBQ joint when we visit Chicago), omitted the hot sauce and added some grilled chicken. It was SO good! Thanks again :)
