    Make the Avocado Salsa Verde In a food processor or blender, combine the salsa verde, avocado, cilantro, and 1 Tbsp lime juice. Blend until the salsa is super creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Scoop into a bowl for dipping.

    Make the Quesadillas Heat a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Warm one tortilla for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway. Flip once more, then spread 1/4th of the refried beans onto half of the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4th of the cheese over the filling and fold the empty half on top to enclose the fillings.

    Cook the Quesadillas Brush the top of the tortilla with oil and carefully flip. Cook until the underside is golden and crispy, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
