Lay another tortilla on top and mash down with a spatula. Cook approx. 4 min. on each side or until cheese is melted. Once off the stove, cut the quesadillas into quarters and serve. For Guacamole: In food processor, combine the meat of 3 avocados, the juice of 1 lime, garlic powder, cilantro, chiles in adobo sauce and salt and pepper. Pulse together until creamy.
