Manchego cheese and salsa go well with this hearty quesadilla filling.


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 8 ounces chorizo, cut in ⅛-inch rounds

  • 1 large white onion, cut in ¼-inch rounds


  1. Place a medium saute pan over medium heat, and add oil. When hot, add chorizo, and cook until nicely browned on both sides, about 5 minutes.

  2. Transfer chorizo to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Add onion to pan, and cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup water, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.
