Quesadillas with Apples, Cheese, and Carmelized Onions
Shanthz posted:

Although apples are a fall-time favorite, and apple pies and cobblers are the most popular apple recipes, there are a few unsung apples out there who find their way to a healthy and tasty snack, complete with crunch, cheesy apples and a thin crust to hold it all together. I posted this easy quesadilla recipe on my blog. It is quick, easy, and tasty. It is awesome when still warm, but leftovers are good too for a light lunch, that is, if there are any leftovers!

1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup grated pepper jack cheese
A pinch of salt
2 medium sized tortillas (whole wheat)
1 tsp olive oil


  1. Heat olive oil in a small skillet and brown apples and onions until carmelized. Set aside.
  2. Warm a griddle and warm a tortilla until browned.
  3. Spread the apple-onion mixture on the tortilla and top with grated cheese.
  4. Place the other tortilla on the apple-onion mixture and continue to heat until the cheese begins to melt.
  5. Carefully flip over the tortillas and brown the other side.
  6. When browned to your perfection, slide onto a cutting board.
  7. If you can wait until the quesadilla slightly cools, that would be great. If not, cut into wedges and enjoy!!
