DIRECTIONS

  • To prepare the onions, lightly brush them with the teaspoon of olive oil. Cook on a grill pan or indoor grill for one or two minutes until the onions have started getting a little soft and have a few grill marks. Remove from grill and break slices into rings.
  • To prepare the chorizo, place a skillet over medium high heat until hot, not smoking. Add the chorizo and cook about 1 minute on each side. Drain the sausage on a paper towel to remove the excess grease.
  • To assemble the quesadilla, start the tortilla that will become the bottom. Top with a tenth of the cheese. Sprinkle with 1/5 of the onions, then the sausage. Cover that with another tenth of the cheese and top with another tortilla.
  • Repeat step 3 with the next 8 tortilla to assemble a total of 5 quesadillas.
  • To cook the quesadillas, heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Brush lightly with some of the tablespoon of olive oil. Place quesadilla in the pan and cook for 2 or three minutes until bottom tortilla is browned and the cheese on bottom has melted and begun to dribble. Flip the quesadilla and continue to cook an additional 2 or three minutes.
  • Remove quesadilla to plate, cover with clean cloth and place in oven while preparing the others. Before serving cut in halves or quarters.
