READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

I love caramelized onions and this is a great way to use them. It's a little different in that the onions are chopped instead of sliced into rings. The recipe comes from a community cookbook.

Lvs2Cook, thanks so much for this great recipe. I made several different kinds of quesadillas for the big game last Sunday (Yea Giants!) and this was one we really loved. I didn't have Fontina so I subbed in Jack. Other than that, perfecto!
