I love all types of quesadillas.  When I was growing up, anytime I went to a Mexican restaurant the only thing I would order would be quesadillas.  Luckily, I can say that I have branched out and now I like to try all types of Mexican food.  Did I ever mention that Mexican food is my favorite?!  I served the quesadillas with pico de gallo along with avocado and placed the mixture in half of the avocado shell. ENJOY!!

Place the tortilla on the sauce pan and let it sit for about 45 sec to 1 minute and then top with cheese and place another tortilla on top and flip (Be careful when flipping and its ok if some stuff comes out)
