This was surprisingly delicious. Very simple and fast to make but quite a complex flavor. Even tastes good cold as leftovers. I thought lunch meat was weird, but with the combination of flavors you couldn't even tell that it had roast beef in it. I did increase the amount of cheese to one ounce per quesadilla. You can make an easy balsamic glaze by microwaving balsamic vinegar for a few minutes until it reduces to a thickened glaze.
Black and Blue Quesadillas
A sweet and salty flavor combination is always a huge hit, and the blue cheese and balsamic glaze in these beefy quesadillas is no exception. Pair with Mixed Greens with Lime Vinaigrette for a sensational meal.
