Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas
Recipe yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total cooking time: 20 minutes
-1 small red onion, thinly sliced
-1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-4 (10-inch) whole wheat tortillas
-1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
-8 slices deli turkey (approximately 8 ounces total)
1. Combine onion and vinegar in a bowl and let marinade for about 5 minutes. Drain, reserve vinegar for another use such as salad dressing
2. Working on one half of each tortilla, sprinkle one-fourth of the cheese, cover with 2 slices of turkey and top with one-fourth of the onion. Fold the tortillas in half, flatten gently with a spatula and cook until the cheese starts to melt, about 2 minutes.
3. Flip and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Make 3 more quesadillas with the remaining ingredients.
