Good taste. Slightly sweet because of onions. For those who want it spicer, can add more jalapenos. Caramelizing onions takes more time about 30 minutes stirring only once in 3 minutes.

Amazing recipe but please work on your diction and pronunciation as this is a channel viewed overseas as well! It is panini (paanini) and ciabatta pronounced as (chabatta)
