BBQ Chicken Quesadillas and Smoked Onion Dip

I’m not a big fan of condiments.  At least not of the average ones, I should say.  But this onion dip is out of this world with flavor!  I am thinking of all kinds of reasons to make it, and Hubby had to smoke extra onions this weekend so I had a stash to work with!  And combined with the quesadillas? Pure magic : )  This recipe was inspired by Elk Public House in Spokane Washington. (We saw them make this on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on Food Network and Hubby turns to me and says “Can you make that?”  How can I resist a challenge!? : )
SMOKED ONION DIP
1 large smoked onion*
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp Worcestershire
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
Pulse onion in food processor until finely chopped.  Mix with remaining ingredients.
Add more salt and pepper if needed.
*Or substitute a regular onion, sauteed until soft, and add 1/4 tsp extra liquid smoke
BBQ CHICKEN QUESADILLAS
Flour tortillas
BBQ sauce
Red onion, thinly sliced
Sharp cheddar, shredded
shredded chicken
Spread one side of a tortilla with bbq sauce. (The back of a spoon works well)
Layer on cheese, red onion, chicken, and more cheese.
Spread bbq sauce on another tortilla and place sauced side down on top of quesadilla. (You want the inside of tortillas spread with bbq sauce.
Cook over medium high heat in a skillet or on a griddle. Cut in wedges and serve hot.
