Three Cheese Quesadilla with Kiwi Salsa

Typically, I make Mexican food at least once in a week or so. Quesadilla and salsa are couple of the regulars that we have. But when I was looking at the Mexican dishes I had blogged so far, I was surprised to note that I hadn't put Quesadilla yet; may be I thought of it as something too simple to put together. But I am  here with this post today hoping that there would be someone somewhere who can benefit from this post.
Though I stick to the same quesadilla recipe whenever I make it (as this is how we in our household likes it), I always try to make a different dip to go with it based on what is available in the market or in my pantry. Some of the our favorites are guacamole, tomato salsa, mango salsa and pineapple salsa.I hope to post all these different dips some other day. The kiwi salsa I have here today is light, refreshing and has a bit of kick and goes well with the cheese quesadilla. 

1/2 cup shredded jack cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
1/2/ cup shredded provolone cheese
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
1/2 onion sliced
6 wheat /flour tortillas
Mix all the ingredients except tortillas and keep aside.Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add one tortilla and cook until soft, about 15 to 30 seconds.Turn this over add  1/4 cup or little more of cheese mixture on one half, fold in half, and cook on both sides until cheese melts  and tortilla is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Repeat with  remaining tortillas. Cut each quesadilla into 4.Serve with salsa or any other dip.
