  6. Spoon ? of the chicken and onion mixture on top of half of the tortilla. Sprinkle over ? of the grated cheese and fold over the other half of the tortilla
  7. Heat for a minute and a half on each side, until the tortilla is browned and the cheese has melted. Remove from the pan and keep warm
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 five more times, so all tortillas are used
  9. Cut the quesadillas into 3 segments each and serve hot. You could serve with dips like guacamole, soured cream or salsa, and a side salad
