INSTRUCTIONS

1 Heat a large cast iron frying pan or other heavy-bottomed pan.

2 Place the sliced onions and garlic in the heated pan and allow to get a nice golden color; add the seasonings, including 1 tsp salt, and toss.

3 Add the tomatoes and basil to the pan. Allow the tomatoes to cook down.

4 Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic glaze and a drizzle of honey and remove from the pan and set aside.

5 Slice the kielbasa into small coins.

6 Heat a cast iron or heavy-bottomed pan to medium high and add the kielbasa. Cook until a nice char is achieved on the kielbasa. Remove the kielbasa and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

7 Place some shredded mozzarella on a tortilla and top with the onion mixture followed by the kielbasa.

8 Sprinkle with more shredded mozzarella and top with another tortilla.

9 Place on a large heated dry cast iron pan, allowing the cheese to melt.

10 When the cheese on one side has melted, flip over and melt the cheese on the other side.
