Caramelized Onion Quesadillas

INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 Vidalia onions - thinly sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 - 6-inch flour tortillas
1-1/2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese

Garnishes:
Guacamole
Salsa
Sour Cream

DIRECTIONS
In a large non-aluminum skillet heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until translucent. Add the sugar to the onions and simmer over low heat until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. The onions should be slightly caramelized. Add the salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and cool.

Heat a non-stick grill pan over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla on the pan and spoon 1/4 cup of the onion mixture evenly over one half. Top evenly with 1/4 cup of the cheese; fold the tortilla in half, pressing down with a spatula.

Cook the quesadilla on a non-stick grill pan until lightly browned, then turn over and cook the other side until lightly brown. Place on a cutting board, slice into wedges, and keep warm under foil. Repeat to cook the remaining quesadillas. Arrange on a large serving platter and serve immediately accompanied by the guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

Serves: 6
