  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 8 eight-inch flour tortillas
  • 6 ounces smoked gouda cheese, grated

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and then stir in the onion. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
  2. Spread half of the cheese on top of 4 tortillas. Top with the chicken and red onions. Add a final layer of cheese and gently spread the filling evenly around each tortilla. Top with the remaining tortillas.
  3. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Place a filled tortilla on the pan, and cook the tortilla for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is golden. Carefully flip the quesadilla and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until the second side is golden and the cheese is completely melted.
  4. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Allow each to cool for a few minutes before cutting into 4 to 6 pieces.

Serve With

Salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
