Caprese Quesadilla


So the other day I posted the delicious Peach Caprese Salad and decided to whip this up with the leftovers.  I really wanted to make a Caprese Panini but when the bread was frozen I became an instant genius and went for the tortillas.  This is an amazing lunch and would be beautiful and a brunch or luncheon.
  • 2 tortillas, burrito sized
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, diced or shredded
  • Fresh chopped basil, desired amount
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar, optional
  1. In a small saucepan bring balsamic vinegar and sugar to a boil.
  2. When balsamic begins to reduce to about half the amount remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Place tortillas on a flat surface and layer one half of each tortilla with cheese, tomatoes, basil and drizzle with a little balsamic reduction.
  4. Fold the tortilla and place onto skillet over medium heat for a couple minutes making sure it doesn't burn.
  5. Flip to other side and let sit until cheese is completely melted and tortilla is golden.
  6. Repeat with other quesadilla and enjoy!
