Avocado Quesadillas

4 soft flour or corn tortillas
4 oz. Manchego cheese, sliced
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into chunks
16 canned or jarred Jalapeño slices

Get out 1 tortilla on a work surface. Place bout a quarter of the cheese on one half, not too near edge so cheese will not melt out as it cooks.

Top cheese with a quarter of the avocado and four jalapeño slices. Fold tortilla in half over filling to form a semicircle.

Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Slide uncooked quesadilla onto the pan. Squish down with a weight or just press briefly with a spatula. cook 1 minute, then flip the quesadilla and grill 1 minute more or until cheese is melted.

Transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board and slice into 6 wedges. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Makes 24 wedges.
