  1. Lay out 2 of the flour tortillas on a flat surface. Top with the cheeses, spreading evenly over the tortillas. Top with remaining tortillas and press to seal.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the other quesadilla.
  3. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice into 8 or 10 pieces. Serve with the Guacamole.


Yield: about 2/3 cup
  1. 1 small ripe Haas avocado
  2. 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper
  3. 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  4. 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
  5. 1/2 lime, juiced
  6. Salt
  7. Halve the avocado and remove the pit with a sharp knife. Discard the pit. Scoop the flesh into a small bowl and mash with a fork. Stir in the remaining ingredients, season with salt to taste, and set aside.
