I've made this recipe twice - it's such a quick and delicious weeknight meal, especially if you love onions.

You can easily ditch the sugar in this recipe and not change the taste. A little aged balsamic would be delicious with the onions and goat cheese as would some fresh basil.

Actually, if you pay attention to the recipe, it says to fold each tortilla in half, so one tortilla is one serving.

This makes a great vegetarian dinner! The caramelized onions alone are delicious. I didn't have goat cheese so I used feta and it came out great. I was only cooking for myself so I quartered the recipe - one tortilla was definitely enough for one.
