Grilled BBQ Onion & Smoked Gouda Quesadillas
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 large yellow onions
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1 tsp hot sauce (or to taste)
- 6 to 8 ounces smoked Gouda cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
8 flour tortillas
Preheat a grill to medium low heat. Thinly slice the onions. Chop the cilantro. Coarsely grate the Gouda cheese
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 3 Tbsp olive oil. Add sliced onions and sauté for about 5 minutes, until almost soft. Add ½ cup barbecue sauce and 2 Tbsp water; stir until onions are evenly coated, around 2 minutes. Turn off heat, and add hot sauce to taste.
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!).
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.
