Before trying this recipe I never thought quesadillas made at home could be this delicious. Adding cooked onions to this recipe brings it up to a totally new level. This dish is sure to be an absolute hit with anyone you share it with.

A tip for preparing onions without tearing up is to peel and then place the onion in the freezer for about 10 minutes before cutting it up. Freezing the onion reduces how much eye irritating acid enzyme is released.
