Ingredients

Marinade:
Caramelized onions:
Grilled Eggplant:
Quesadilla:
Mixed Tomato Salsa:

Directions

Quesadilla:

In a blender, combine the marinade ingredients and blend until smooth. Place the chicken in a medium bowl, pour the marinade over it, cover, and refrigerate for 4 hours. 

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and caramelized, about 20 to 25 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and cilantro and cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside. 

Preheat grill pan. Brush eggplant with oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill for 2 minutes on each side. Remove and coarsely chop. 

Preheat grill pan over high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side until cooked through. Let rest for 5 minutes and slice thinly on the bias. Set aside. 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

Place 6 tortillas on a large un-greased baking sheet. Divide the cheese, chicken, onions, and eggplant among the 6 tortillas and season with salt and pepper, to taste. 

Stack the tortillas to make three 2 layer tortillas and top with the remaining 3 tortillas. Brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with ancho chile powder. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the tortillas are slightly crisp and the cheese has melted. Cut into quarters and garnish with the Mixed Tomato Salsa.

Mixed Tomato Salsa:

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
