Blue Cheese & Red Onion Quesadilla

ep100 - blue cheese & red onion quesadilla

Serves 4 as an appetizer

Think about this – melty blue cheese married to caramelized red onion that’s been sweetened with a little brown sugar. On second thought – don’t think about it – just make it.


  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 8 corn tortillas


  1. Cook red onion in a non-stick pan over medium heat until very soft, then stir in brown sugar
  2. Add blue cheese and mix until cheese is melty
  3. Divide onion and blue cheese mixture between 4 tortillas, spread out and top each with another tortilla
  4. Cook in non-stick pan until both sides are lightly browned, remove, cut into wedges and serve
