Flip over the other half of the tortilla to form half a circle and press down.

You can use a panini press to grill the quesadilla, otherwise place the quesadilla in the prepared skillet and grill it on both sides until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Repeat with remaining tortillas and ingredients.
